Benefits estimation for simulation systems used for aircrew training in a multiship environment by William C Moor( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A general model for the benefit evaluation of multiship training simulation systems is presented. The benefit measures derived are oriented toward allowing benefit-cost evaluations of proposed alternative simulation systems. The model is based on empirical data drawn from evaluation studies of simulators as well as analytical approaches. The focus of the approach using this model is selecting the most appropriate and economic simulators for use at the operational level. The model does not attempt to compare, or justify the comparison of, the training value of a specific simulator versus a specific aircraft. The model allows for full sensitivity analysis and variation of all important parameters. A set of LOTUS 1-2-3 spreadsheets are presented which facilitate the use of the model. The model is demonstrated by means of an application which is based on actual data. Aircrew training, Flight simulators, Simulation systems, Benefits, Models, Simulators, Costs, Multiship. Training
Potential modeling and simulation contributions to air education and training command flying training : specialized undergraduate pilot training( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes an investigation of the Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training (SUPT) regarding application of advanced modeling and simulation technologies. The effort revealed training challenges within the program for which modern technologies offer training improvements and solutions. Potential solutions span the full spectrum of current activities from academics to flightline training. The study describes the methodology used in identifying and analyzing training problems as well as the process for selecting appropriate technologies. It also suggests an investment strategy for acquiring and integrating technologies within SUPT. Finally, a preliminary cost benefits model is described as a tool for assessing cost/training benefits prior to technology investment
A survey of F-16 squadron-level pilot training in PACAF by Thomas H Gray( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Armstrong Laboratory studied operational squadron-level flying training to identify training requirements and shortfalls in operational squadrons and to determine areas where technology development could offer potential solutions. The approach followed a training needs assessment model in obtaining information from training managers and operational squadrons pilots. F-16 squadrons located in the Pacific Air Forces were chosen for study as the most likely population for generalizability of findings. About two-thirds of all pilots assigned to PACAF F-16 units participated in the data collection. Content areas investigated included flying, ancillary training, and professional military education, but the emphasis of the study was on flying training programs. Survey findings appear valuable as preliminary indicators for improved training technology applications. Major findings were as follows: (a) Maintaining air combat proficiency is the most difficult single aspect of substaining mission readiness in three squadrons. (b) Multiforce, dissimilar aircraft air combat training was the primary area where more and better training is need. (c) Specialized training in certain skill areas including weapon systems/delivery and electronic combat is needed. Specifically focused technology development could improve training in all of the above areas, with a view toward improving the integration of combat skills in the cockpit through advanced simulation capabilities. Technology emphasis at the squadron level would significantly offset effects anticipated from cuts in schoolhouse programs. Other findings are also presented
Human factors issues in combat identification by Robert P Herz( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited book presents an array of approaches on how human factors theory and research addresses the challenges associated with combat identification. Special emphasis is placed on reducing human error that leads to fratricide, which is the unintentional death or injury of friendly personnel by friendly weapons during an enemy engagement. Although fratricide has been a concern since humans first engaged in combat operations, it gained prominence during the Persian Gulf War. To reduce fratricide, advances in technological approaches to enhance combat identification (e.g., Blue Force Tracker)
