Abstract
THE USMC NIGHT TARGETING SYSTEM (NTS), DESIGNED FOR INSTALLATION IN THE AH-1 ATTACK HELICOPTER BY 1994, IS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE MULTI-SENSOR SYSTEMS REQUIRING COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING FOR SKILLS OF AIR AND GROUND CREWS. DCS WILL CONDUCT A DETAILED STUDY OF TRAINING REQUIREMENTS FOR OPERATOR AND MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL IMPOSED BY THE INCORPORATION OF THE NIGHT TARGETING SYSTEM (NTS) IN THE AH-1W AIRCRAFT. TRAINING MATERIALS FOR THE CURRENT AH-1 EQUIPPED WITH THE TOW SIGHT UNIT (TSU) WILL CONSTITUTE AN NTS TRAINING SYSTEM BASELINE. NTS-PECULIAR TRAINING REQUIREMENTS WILL BE IDENTIFIED FOR BOTH OPERATORS AND GROUND CREWS TO FURTHER DEVELOP AN NTS TRAINING SYSTEM FROM THE BASELINE. ONCE FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS ARE CLEARLY DELINEATED, DCS WILL ASSESS COMPUTER BASED AND TRADITIONAL TRAINING SYSTEM APPROACHES TO NTS. THE TRAINING PACKAGE WILL BE CONCEPTUALIZED TO INCLUDE MISSION PLANNING/MISSION REHEARSAL PROCEDURES, SENSOR INFLIGHT BORESIGHT CONCEPTS, PERFORMANCE SAFETY GUIDELINES, AND NTS BIT AND GROUND TESTING PROCEDURES. NTS SENSOR PERFORMANCE PREDICTION IMPLEMENTATION REPRESENTS AN INNOVATIVE TOOL TO ENHANCE AIRCRAFT UTILIZATION AND MISSION SUCCESS.
