Training System Requirements-A Training System Developer's Viewpoint 901945
The definition of a conceptual Joint Primary Aircraft Training Systems (JPATS) for use in USAF and USN pilot training re quired the development of an algorithm to select the appropriate training media and of a methodology to compare the training effectiveness of the aircraft candidates for the system. The media selection algo rithm uses cognitive and behavioral compo nents of the skills to identify the appro priate training media. The aircraft comparison methodology used a series of performance and system characteristics to generate a training difficulty index (relative to the current T-37 baseline). This index was used to estimate the skill level achieved at aircraft mastery and the length of time to achieve mastery. This paper discusses the general JPATS study effort with the focus on these two development efforts.
