During the training of fighter pilots a heavy increase of the pilot workload has been indicated when
the tactical picture is given in bullseye format instead of bearing, range, altitude, azimuth (BRAA)
format or via data link. In discussions between active pilots and personnel at the Air Force Combat
Simulation Centre, it has been concluded that it would be useful to have some way of training the
building of situational awareness. Preferably without having to be in the air or in a simulator
facility using resources as fighter controllers and other pilots.
The conclusion led to the development of training software in a project involving active fighter
pilots with different levels of experience, active fighter controllers, engineers from the computer
game industry and engineers from the fighter jet industry. This training software resulted in the
Bullseye Trainer™, which is now implemented as a part of the Air Force fighter pilot training.
