AbstractTelemetry is usually thought of as a medium to transmit data to verify missile and equipment performance. Almost always the telemetry kit is tested to total destruction. Redstone Technical Test Center (RTTC) has developed several video telemetry kits for use as training aids. The military is training modern soldiers and pilots to use high dollar/tech weapons. When the gunner being trained makes an error and is not corrected, his/her bad behavior is reinforced. Aircraft carrying the TGM-65 MAVERICK do not have enough space for a human trainer. Training with the TGM-65 MAVERICK is performed by recording seeker video, then replaying it during the debriefing. The newly developed video telemetry system for the trainer allows experienced pilots to observe the training from the ground station and to provide immediate feedback to correct any errors. This paper focuses on the use of video telemetry as a training aid to provide quality training for servicemen.
