Abstract
THE U.S. FLEET MUST DEPLOY MOBILE ACTIVE SONAR SURVEILLANCE ASSETS, INCLUDING MONOSTATIC, BISTATIC, AND MULTISTATIC PLATFORMS. CRITICAL TO EFFECTIVE EMPLOYMENT OF THESE ASSETS IS THE AVAILABILITY OF A TRAINING PROCESS WHICH EFFECTIVELY ADDRESSES THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF MOBILE ACTIVE SONAR PERSONNEL. THIS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT WILL DEVELOP AN INTEGRATED TRAINING SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE DERIVEDFROM SUCH TRAINING CONCEPTS AS LEARNING THEORY INSTRUCTION, TRAINEEMOTIVATION, AND COGNITIVE SCIENCE. THE END RESULT OF THIS RESEARCH WILL INCLUDE A TRAINING SYSTEM WHICH ENCOMPASSES ALL FACETS OF KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER AND SKILL PROFICIENCY AND INCLUDES ALL ESSENTIAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS: - CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION - SHORE BASED SIMULATION/STIMULATION - ON-BOARD/WORKSTATION/DESK TOP TRAINER - EMBEDDED CAPABILITY IN LIGHT OF CONTINUING BUDGET AND RESOURCE CONSTRAINTS SPECIFIC ATTENTION WILL BE PAID TO EVOLVING MANPOWER REDUCTION TECHNIQUES REFERRED TO UNDER THE GENERAL HEADING OF INTELLIGENT TUTORING SYSTEMS. BY INTEGRATING ALL FACETS OF THE TRAINING PIPELINE IN THIS MANNER, SPAWAR WILL BENEFIT FROM THE FULL RANGE AND VARIETY OF RESEARCH RELATED TO THE COGNITIVE STRUCTURE OF CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTIONALSTRATEGIES.
