Research Institution
Phase II will evaluate the four most promising training interventions determined from Phase I and their impact on the HF skill deficiencies of Channelized Attention, Task Misprioritization, Selected the Wrong Course of Action, and Crew Coordination. The training interventions that will be evaluated are (1) enhanced focus academic training, (2) interactive case history, (3) CBT gaming, and (4) computer based team trainer. Phase I revealed that the UAV community had the best ability, both operationally and logistically, to support the evaluation of the training interventions. The 11th RS Commander has readily agreed to assist in Phase II evaluation by allowing student availability for four additional hours of CRM intervention evaluations. To minimize the impact of the training intervention evaluations on the 11th RS our Phase II training intervention methodology will use a four-tier spiral approach. The spiral approach is a method in which we introduce each intervention cumulatively one at a time as they are developed. A baseline will be established and then the spirals will be introduced. Spiral one would consist of intervention 1. Spiral 2 will consist of interventions 1+2. Spiral 3 will consist of interventions 1+2+3. Finally spiral four will consist of interventions 1+2+3+4.
