Research Paper Title
An Overview of Military Training.
Military training means definite but very different things to different people:
- To the commander of a military unit, it means exercising troops in the field or sailors at sea so that they operate as an integrated, coordinated unit.
- To military personnel managers, it means preparing and certifying individuals across a full spectrum of occupational specialties that include cooks, dog handlers, tank turret repairers, radar technicians, and fighter pilots.
- To developers and providers of major military systems, it means exercises performed in simulators or on the systems themselves.
- To all concerned, it means preparing individuals from a civilian society to perform as professional military personnel.
Military training is distinguished from other forms of training by its emphases on:
- Just-in-case preparation; and
- The training of collectives.
This document is intended to provide a general system-wide overview that will provide a useful perspective on military training for all those involved in developing and assessing prototypes for the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative.
