Abstract
CAE Professional Services (Canada) Inc. (CAE PS) was contracted by Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) Toronto to conduct work in accordance with a Call-up under Contract Number W7711-068111. The intent of the Call-up was to provide experimental support to DRDC Toronto in the evaluation of the Victoria Class Virtual Submarine (VCVS); DRDC Toronto designed the experiment and CAE PS assisted in the execution of the project. The evaluation of the VCVS was conducted in accordance with Protocol Number L-809 (Magee, Cain, & Thompson, 2011), an experimental protocol approved by the DRDC Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC).The VCVS is a game-based software program designed to deliver training to military personnel in a simulated submarine environment. This document describes the implementation of the protocol, provides qualitative findings and identifies the limitations and lessons learned from the conduct of the work. The results of the behavioural studies are reported separately by DRDC Toronto.
