PERSONNEL PERFORMANCE AND TRAINING (Section O)

IV.O.02—Combined Arms Training Strategy for Aviation.  By FY98, develop training technologies based upon empirical data that support the development of a combined arms training strategy for aviation. A methodology will be developed and demonstrated that makes the most effective use of simulators, training devices, and live exercises for initial flight skills through unit combat tasks. In FY97, develop and demonstrate a methodology for rapid evaluation and thorough assessment of on–hand and proposed devices for unit training. Minimum fidelity requirements will be established for critical aircrew skills training and for utilization of, and upgrades to, existing simulators. In FY98, a rationale will be determined for the expanded use of simulators in IERW (Initial Entry Rotary Wing) training to achieve an effective mix of simulator and aircraft training.

Supports: U.S. Army Aviation Center (USAAVNC); STRICOM; PM CATT (AVCATT); TSMS for Longbow, Comanche, Kiowa Warrior.

IV.O.06—Force XXI Training Strategies.   By FY01 develop and demonstrate new training and evaluation technologies that prepare operators and commanders to take maximum advantage of evolving digitized C3 systems. This training research will incorporate the use of virtual, constructive, and live simulations to demonstrate and evaluate selected prototype training techniques. By FY98 evaluate prototype staff training packages that use advanced digital technology. By FY99 evaluate training and performance assessment tools developed for the digitized battlefield. The training techniques and strategies will be demonstrated and evaluated in Advanced Warfighting Experiments (AWEs).
