Abstract
MULTISHIP AIR COMBAT TRAINING REPRESENTS THE FIGHTER PILOT'S MOST COMPLEX AND DEMANDING PEACETIME CHALLENGE. MASTERY OF THIS ART IS CRUCIAL TO THIS SUCCESS IN COMBAT. YET, CURRENT PROGRAMS AFFORD THE FIGHTER PILOT LITTLE OPPORTUNITY TO TRAIN FOR MULTISHIP AIR COMBAT. MOST AVAILABLE FLYING TIME IS DEVOTED TO THE ACQUISITION AND MAINTENANCE OF INDIVIDUAL SKILLS WHICH ARE PREREQUISITE TO MULTISHIP TRAINING. THE FIGHTER FORCE NEEDS AN INSTRUCTIONAL METHODOLOGY WHICH INCREASES MULTISHIP AIR COMBAT TRAINING WITHOUT INCREASING FLYING HOUR REQUIREMENTS. RECENT ADVANCES IN COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF RELATIVELY LOW COST INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA WHICH CAN INCREASE THE FREQUENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF MULTISHIP AIR COMBAT TRAINING. DEVELOPING THE MEANS TO ACQUIRE AND PRACTICE THE NECESSARY INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM SKILLS WHILE ON THE GROUND WILL ALLOW MORE ACTUAL FLYING TIME TO BE DEVOTED TO MULTISHIP TRAINING. THIS PHASE I EFFORT WILL DEFINE TRAINING CONCEPT AND OUTLINE REQUIREMENTS NECESSARY TO DEVELOP AN INSTRUCTIONAL METHODOLOGY.
