Abstract
"This Phase II project will develop and validate a computerizedtool (Scenario Design and Assessment Tool for Training) to assistinstructors in designing mission scenarios for use in simulatortraining. ScenDATT is an integrated scenario design andeducational tool that takes Navy courseware developers, step bystep, through the ISD process as they design aircrew trainingscenarios from scratch or modify existing scenarios from alibrary of previously constructed scenarios. All steps in thedesign process are based on state of the art principles of ISDthat were extracted during intensive Phase I research. ScenDATTis written in dynamic html so it can run on any PC workstationthat has Internet Explorer, and it can operate either locally orbe web-enabled. Though written for S-3B and HH-60B weaponsystems, ScenDATT can be adapted to any platform that requiresmission scenarios for aircrew simulator training. From extensivebeta-testing with users at Naval Air Station, North Island,ScenDATT was developed with a flexible GUI, multiple linksbetween its education and design modes, Help menu, graphicexamples, print capabilities, and a variety of administrativefunctions. ScenDATT's library contains scenarios populated withmultiple events drawn from basic flight, emergency procedure, andtactical missions.BENEFITS: We believe there will be enormous benefits to developing a computerized scenario design and assessment tool. Since the scenario is the situatio
