Abstract
Currently there are limited tools to aid in training the task of casualty extraction from a vehicle. The V-Xtract system includes three components that facilitate training on this critical task: A reconfigurable vehicle simulator, a performance metric suite, and a training management system. The vehicle simulator is designed to be reconfigurable so the vehicle can be rotated and modified to create unique training scenarios that fit the trainee's performance and experience level. The performance metric suite is a hardware/software package that guides instructors through the process of integrating sensors onto mannequins that they currently use to gather performance data. The training management system builds on the output of those sensors to provide an overall picture of each trainee's performance on each targeted task and provide training configuration guidance for future sessions with the trainer, ensuring that skills develop at an optimal pace while not overwhelming trainees. The requirements and conceptual designs of each of these three components were developed under Phase I of this effort based on contextual task and cue fidelity evaluations and a training needs analysis. During Phase II, the requirements will be followed to develop a prototype training system to target vehicle extraction training.
