Using Simulation Based Training Methods for Improved Warfighter Decision Making Conference Paper uri icon


  • Few efforts have greater significance to our warfighting capability than those aimed at dramatically improving the skills, knowledge, and experience of military decision makers. The research and technology ideas presented in this paper are motivated by need to improve the quality of decision makers through the design of innovative training technology for military decision makers. This paper describes an adaptive simulation based training approach to improve the effectiveness of warfighter decision making. The paper describes (i) a method for adaptive simulation based training; (ii) a mission-driven approach to measure trainee performance based on carefully designed metrics; and (iii) an automation support architecture for adaptive simulation based training. Examples are provided throughout the paper to illustrate key research ideas. 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
