C-STAR simulator teaching experience
Keywords:operator, UAV, simulator, training, eye tracker
In the paper hereby, some issues related to training, evaluation, and selection of UAV operators are considered. In particular, the training process is carried out by means of simulator C-STAR, SimLat Ltd and group of trainees. Each trainee is told to put a mobile eye tracker on, required to perform exercises at the pilot and the payload station and, eventually, take a test. In this way, the trainees’ abilities are estimated and the eligible candidates are selected for further training. Experimental data are processed upon candidates’ training completion and presented in the paper graphically. Conclusions are made as to what trainee’s performance is preferable, etc.
