The Design of a Shiphandling Training System. Final Report, June 1977 through January 1979.
Cordell, Curtis C.; And Others
To improve shiphandlers' training in three surface warfare officers school courses, a study was designed to develop an integrated, career-structured program. Constructing the integrated system involved three tasks: (1) formulate a career-structured shiphandling training unit to enable preparation of curriculum, lesson guides, and measurement criteria; (2) develop a functional specification for a full-mission bridge simulator to be employed as an integral part of the training system; and (3) develop a concept design for a new small craft training device to prepare a preliminary design. Costs were estimated for the two training devices, and all tasks were accomplished. (Appendixes contain a glossary, shiphandling training unit lesson topic identification, functional specification for full mission shiphandling bridge simulator, and a concept design for the small craft training device.)
