Abstract
A PROTOTYPE DIGITAL, VIDEO-INTERACTIVE-BASED, INTELLIGENT, COMPUTER-ASSISTED TRAINING SYSTEM (DVI-ICAT) OR MISSION PLANNING SYSTEM WILL BE DEVELOPED. THE SYSTEM WILL SERVE BOTH AS A LAUNCHING POINT FOR FURTHER PHASE II WORK ON THE SYSTEM AND FOR DEMONSTRATING TO NASA/JSC THE CAPABILITIES AND POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS OF DVI TO TRAINING AND MISSION PLANNING. THIS SYSTEM WILL USE DVI TECHNOLOGY TO PRESENT THE TRAINEE/MISSION PLANNER WITH A SERIES OF HIGHLY REALISTIC INTERACTIVE SIMULATIONS OF THE SUBJECT AREA. THE SYSTEM MAKES EXTENSIVE USE OF THE UNIQUE MULTIMEDIA PRESENTATION CAPABILITIES OFFERED BY DVI, INCLUDING FULL-MOTION COLOR VIDEO, HIGH RESOLUTION STILL IMAGERY, THREE-DIMENSIONAL GRAPHICS, AND MULTIPLE AUDIO CHANNELS. THE INTELLIGENT TUTORING COMPONENT WILL BE INTEGRATED INTO THE SIMULATION AND WILL INCLUDE DYNAMIC MODELS OF THE TRAINEE, EXPERT, AND TUTOR. THE USER INTERFACE WILL BE SUPPORTED BY WRITING EXTENSIONS TO THE DVI SOFTWARE LIBRARY AND BUILDING UPON WORK CURRENTLY UNDERWAY AT THE FIRM IN THE AREA OF DVI-ICAT. THE ITS STRUCTURES AND KNOWLEDGE BASES WILL BE BUILT USING OBJECT-ORIENTED DESIGN METHODOLOGIES AND COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE EXPERT-SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT TOOLS.
