"The Phase I effort will develop a Functional Description Document to establish requirements/constraints for a closed-loop adaptive training architecture that will support mission-area training. This training architecture will provide integrated satelliteoperations training as well as mission rehearsal for multiple satellite systems by using advanced interactive multimedia instruction (IMI); intelligent tutoring system (ITS) technology; and advanced modeling, simulation, stimulation, and visualizationtechnologies.Preliminary designs for an Instructional Expert and Learner Model will be included the Phase I effort. Also, a demonstration will be created with the appearance of a prototypical closed-loop training curriculum for a targeted mission-area that will beimplemented under the new three-phase Satellite Training Concept. Finally, a curriculum analysis and a first-level requirements analysis will be performed. The curriculum analysis will provide a sample of the content to be taught with the technology.The first-level requirements analysis will describe the implications of the closed-loop functionality from a software perspective.The Phase I effort will provide the groundwork for a solid training system that will support continued research into training effectiveness, satellite operations training continuum concepts, human systems integration, manning reduction, and automation ofsatellite system operation.
