The Advanced Embedded Training System (AETS): An Intelligent Embedded Tutoring System for Tactical Team Training
10 (3): "'Best of ITS 98' Special Issue "
The Advanced Embedded Training System (AETS) applies intelligent tutoring
systems technology to improving tactical training quality and reducing manpower needs in
simulation-based shipboard team training. AETS provides layers of performance assessment,
cognitive diagnosis, and team-training support on top of the existing embedded mission
simulation capability in the Navy's Aegis-class ships. Detailed cognitive models of trainee task
performance are used to drive the assessment, diagnosis and instructional functions of the
system. AETS' goal is not to replace human instructors, but to allow one instructor to perform
the work of several, and in a more consistent and efficient manner than possible today.
