Title

Intelligent Instructor Support System For Training Simulators

Abstract

Training Simulators provide an environment in which a student can practice tasks that are either impractical, expensive, or impossible to exercise in a real environment. In general, however they inherently provide little or no feedback on student performance, skill deficiencies or coaching on correct behavior. Such tasks are performed by an instructor from the Instructor/Operator Station (IOS), which is analogous to the control console of a simulator. In a tactical training task, the instructor can take on several roles in addition to monitoring the trainee. The instructor may have to prepare the training scenario to present to the trainee for his/her solution. This scenario may be partially based on the observation of the performance of the student during exercises. Additionally, some simulators have the ability to modify the scenario dynamically; i.e., introduce additional complications in the middle of the scenario. In such cases, the instructor has to quickly decide what new variables to introduce during the course of the exercise itself. Other roles that can be played by the instructor are that of an adversary or that of a team member. This paper discusses the elements of an Intelligent Instructor Support System (IISS) which can assist the instructor in performing his duties. Such a system is also compared to Intelligent Computer Aided Instructor (ICAI).
