"Readiness training for satellite operators does not currently feature certain important systems that exist in the operations center - systems that play a major role in space operations and, more importantly, systems that play key roles in coordinating withand supporting external agencies and personnel. While the specific systems that are excluded vary somewhat across satellite systems, they can include the weather system (e.g., the Advanced Meteorological Information System [AMIS]), scheduling system,Defense Message System (DMS), and subscriber terminal (ST). The exclusion of these systems from the training environment is problematic for a number of reasons including the loss of opportunities for training teamwork within the SOC and larger missionteam. CHI Systems proposes to improve the training provided to satellite operators by developing a system that emulates the functionality of the four systems listed above. This system, called the Multi-Use Training Technology (MUTT), will be implementedas a training suite workstation that is networked to an instructor workstation that features training exercise controls, uses intelligent agent technology to monitor and assess trainee proficiency; and allows the instructor to communicate with the traineevia the emulated DMS and ST as well as via a separate messaging tool that supports training-related communications. The Multi-User Training Technology (MUTT) represents an important traini
