Abstract
FORWARD BASING AND MISSION REQUIREMENTS, FREQUENTLY RESULT IN FLEET AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS IN GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATIONS THAT DO NOT PERMIT MILITARY PERSONNEL READY ACCESS TO THE APPROPRIATE AIRCRAFT SIMULATORS NECESSARY TO REMAIN IN THE HIGHEST STATE OF TACTICAL PROFICIENCY. THIS PHASE I PROJECT WILL EXAMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZATION OF THE OPERATIONAL AIRCRAFT'S AVIONICS AND WEAPONS SYSTEMS AS A TRAINING SIMULATOR WHILE PARKED ON THE FLIGHT LINE THERE-BY ENABLING NAVY PERSONNEL TO MAINTAIN OPTIMUM PROFICIENCY. THE KEY REQUIREMENT TO ACHIEVING THIS OBJECTIVE IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SOFTWARE RESIDENT SYSTEM OF INTERCHANGEABLE TRAINING PACKAGES THAT CAN PROVIDE A COST EFFECTIVE BUT REALISTIC AND VIABLE MENU OF TRAININGSCENARIOS SUITABLE FOR THIS APPLICATION. THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS TO DETERMINE THE BASIC FEASIBILITY OF THIS CONCEPT AND TO IDENTIFY THE OPTIMUM APPROACH FOR A PHASE II PROOF OF CONCEPT DEMONSTRATION. SUCCESSFUL DEVELOPMENT OF SUCH AN OPERATIONAL AIRCRAFT SIMULATION CAPABILITY REQUIRES THE DEFINITION OF AIRCRAFT SIMULATOR TRAINING REQUIREMENTS, EXAMINATION OF EMBEDDED SOFTWARE AVIONICS CONCEPTS, AND ASSEMBLY OF A COST/BENEFIT FEASIBILITY MATRIX ALONG WITH A PHASE II TEST PLAN FOR CANDIDATE CONCEPT OPERATIONAL DEMONSTRATION AND EVALUATION.
