While developing a Virtual Environment (VE) Ship-handling simulator for the Surface Warfare Officer School (SWOS) in Newport, RI, researchers at the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) in Orlando, FL recognized the idea of integrating an Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) to provide feedback to the student The system, known as a Virtual Commanding Officer (VCO), would provide instructional feedback to the student to ensure that beneficial training occurs. The VCO would allow a student to conduct valuable training without a human operator present. The approach taken was to survey cognitive architectures to find a notation to form a specification for feedback generated and delivered from a Commanding Officer to a ship-handler in training during an Underway Replenishment (UNREP). The cognitive architecture called SOAR was selected. A SOAR-like architecture was used to develop a VCO-ITS specification that resembles three Commanding Officer training method profiles. The profiles were then reviewed by qualified Surface Warfare Officers to validate their accuracy. The result was a specification for a VCO-ITS with validated domain content in the form of three profiles. This specification was provided to NAWCTSD in support of their future efforts in the development of a VE Ship-handling simulator.
