Abstract
DEVELOPMENT OF A SIMULATION NETWORK USING ARCADE LEVEL TECHNOLOGY WILLPROVIDE A LOW COST, INTERACTIVE MULTI-USER TRAINING ENVIRONMENT FOR USE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF TEAMWORK SKILLS OF PERSONNEL. THE SYSTEM WILL BE SUITABLE FOR USE IN A BROAD SPECTRUM OF ROLES, AND WILL PROVIDE A FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF MODERN TRAINING METHODS. IT WILL ALLOW INNOVATIONS ADDRESSING THIS AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES TO BE STUDIED IN A CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT. SEPEARATE ARCADE LEVEL "SIMULATION ISLANDS" WILL BE DEVELOPED AND LINKED TOGETHER TO FORM THE NETWORK. SIMULATION ISLANDS ARE ARCADE STYLE DEVICES DESIGNED TO SIMULATE COMBAT ROLES AND TO BROADCAST AND RECEIVE NETWORK DATA. SIMULATION ISLAND WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR A VARIETY OF ROLES, SO THAT TEAM MEMBERS FROM VARIOUS DISCIPLINES MAY BE TRAINED USING A COMMON NETWORK. THE PRIMARY PHASE I OBJECTIVE IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF SPECIFICATIONS AND PERFORMANCE ESTIMATES. PHASE II WILL PRODUCE COMPLETED SYSTEMS.
