Abstract
SPACE AND NAVAL WARFARE SYSTEMS COMMAND HAS IDENTIFIED A NEED TO DEVELOP AUTOMATED EMBEDDED TRAINING AIDS FOR THE INTEGRATED UNDERSEA SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM (IUSS) THAT: WILL SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE TRAINING COSTS, WILL ALLOW ON-THE-JOB TRAINING USING REAL DATA, PROVIDE STAND-ALONE TRAINING, ENABLE PARTICIPATION IN TRAINING SCENARIOS, AND REQUIRE MINIMUM SUPERVISION. THE IUSS AUTOMATED EMBEDDED TRAINING WILL EVENTUALLY BE IMPLEMENTED ON A DTC-2. PRIMARY CONSIDERATIONS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF EMBEDDED TRAINING FOR IUSS INCLUDE THE SELECTION OF COST-EFFECTIVE, COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE COMPUTER BASED TRAINING (CBT) DEVELOPMENT TOOLS THAT ARE COMPATIBLE WITH THE OTC-2, PROTECTING THE SYSTEM DATABASE AGAINST TRAINEE ERROR IF REAL DATA IS USED DURING TRAINING ACTIVITIES, USE OF AS MUCH OF THE EXISTING CLASSROOM CURRICULUM AS POSSIBLE, AND PROVIDING A SEAMLESS TRANSITION FOR THE OPERATOR FROM OPERATION TO TRAINING AIDS AND BACK. TIBURON HAS CONDUCTED EXTENSIVE RESEARCH INTO THE CBT TOOLS AVAILABLE FOR THE DTC-2, AND HAS SUCCESSFULLY DEMONSTRATED EMBEDDED TRAINING AND ON-LINE DOCUMENTATION FOR THE MOOS SYSTEM FOR THE CRUISE MISSILE PROGRAM. TIBURON PROPOSES TO UTILIZE A SIMILAR APPROACH FOR EMBEDDED IUSSTRAINING AIDS.
