Abstract
The purpose of the proposed effort is to develop a predictive model-based tool, and associated metrics, to assess the impact of various levels of simulator fidelity on training effectiveness and combat mission performance. Aptima will base the proposed tool on an updated categorization of the levels of fidelity associated with various combinations of simulator subsystems. Aptima will identify the combat performance metrics currently being collected and identify new metrics that are appropriate for comparative assessment. In addition, Aptima will identify the technological, cognitive, and perceptual factors that may be mediating or moderating the effects of simulator fidelity on combat mission performance. In Phase II, Aptima will validate the model and metrics via experimentation utilizing operational subject matter experts (SMEs) and force cueing technology representing various categories of simulator subsystem fidelity.
