This report surveys the use of microcomputers in existing and emerging training devices, with an emphasis on military training devices. Other major purposes of this report are to familiarize the training device designer with the capabilities of the microcomputer and present the designer with the set of issues to consider in determining if a microcomputer could be used in his particular trainer. After providing a description of training devices, this study addresses the definition and capabilities of current microcomputers. Current applications of training devices that utilize both single and multiple, or distributed, microprocessors are given. Next, an overview of the selection considerations that must be used in a training device are presented. Finally, areas of future research that are appropriate to microcomputers in training devices are discussed.
