Model of Psychological Impacts on Military Training in Simulation

  • Rolf Otte
Part of the Defense Research Series book series (DRSS, volume 4)


In the recent years much effort was made to improve the technologies of training devices and training programs. But also attention should be turned to the fact that the human factors have to be adapted by training to optimize behavioral outcomes and performances. Neglecting the specifics of the human interface will cause problems.

A model of psychological influences will be discussed (figure 1 and 2) - after a brief description of the basics in military training and simulation - which can contribute to modulate and improve the performances in military training sequences, especially on simulators.
