The COBRAS synthetic theater of war exercise trial: summary and report of findings
U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences, 1998 - Computer simulation - 34 pages
"This report gives an abbreviated summary of the development and implementation conditions and the findings for the Synthetic Theater of War (STOW) Exercise Trial, conducted at Fort Knox, KY in March 1998. The trial results indicate that there is potential for realizing training value from STOW-type training, and that training support materials can he developed using the same model and procedures used for other Force XXI Training Program exercises. However, improvements to the simulation systems and linkages, the communications systems, and the physical layout are needed prior to further research on training value. Details about the full preparation process, reasons for decisions, and data that support the reported findings are contained in a research report entitled The COBRAS Synthetic Theater of War Exercise Trial: Report on Development, Results, and Lessons Learned (Campbell, Pratt, Deter, Graves, Ford, Campbell, & Quinkert, in preparation)."--Stinet.
