Automated Operator Instruction in Team Tactics.
Daniels, R. W.; And Others
The report discusses the applicability of available advanced training technologies to the training of Navy tactical teams. An experiment was conducted to test whether there is sufficient commonality in team tasks performed in existing team tactics trainers to warrant development of a team training system for specific advanced technologies. Data were collected for team tasks learned in representative training devices for air, surface and subsurface tasks. These data were analyzed for commonality among and within training devices using a numerical taxonomy. Results indicated little commonality when total tasks were inspected, but more commonality when stimulus, cognition, and response elements were compared. A major recommendation is that the Navy concentrate on improving the effectiveness of existing devices rather than launching a program to develop a generalized training device. (RB)
