Abstract
The Canadian Army uses the Small Arms Trainer (SAT) to support the use of infantry weapons. A trial was conducted at CFB Gagetown to validate the simulator and to determine how live and simulated fire should be used to prepare troops for the Personal Weapons Test Level 3 (PWT3). Six infantry platoons completed the range practices using either: - all live fire; - all simulated fire; - simulated fire, completing all range practices twice; or - simulated fire for the first five range practices and live fire for the last three range practices. Following training, all participants fired the PWT3 using live fire. Results indicated that a mix of live and simulated fire led to the highest scores on the PWT3 and the highest proportion of marksmen.
