Paper Abstract

We describe a new pilot tactical training aid recently delivered to selected U.S. Marine Corps helicopter squadrons. The trainer is directed at improving targeting performance on missions supported by cockpit display of FLIR imagery. Particular features of the target identification sensor performance (TISP) trainer reported here include infrared phenomenology training, ground target identification drill, sensor controls operation training, symbology familiarization and performance prediction. Training is accomplished using real infrared imagery modified to reflect varying environmental conditions. Trainees can select the tactical scene and any of nearly 200 environmental combinations. Performance prediction graphs are then presented along with the modified images, thereby illustrating the imagery at the predicted ranges. The infrared phenomenology training further demonstrates the environmental impacts.
