Evaluation of a Map Interpretation and Terrain Analysis Course for Nap-of-the-Earth Navigation. Research Report 1198.
Holman, Garvin L.
This report documents the training effectiveness of a map interpretation and terrain analysis course (MITAC) developed to enhance the ability of helicopter pilots to navigate accurately during low altitude terrain following flight. A study comparing student aviators taught by the MITAC technique with a control group of students taught by conventional techniques showed MITAC to be significantly superior in enhancing the aviator's ability to navigate rapidly and accurately during low-level flight.
