Simulation can be an effective training method if the simulation environment is as realistic as possible. An ' important part of the training for Navy pilots involves flying against computer-controlled agents in simulated tactical scenarios. In order for such a situation to be realistic, the computer-controlled agents must be indistinguishable from human-piloted agents within the simulated environment. The primary goal of the Soar IFOR project (Jones et al. 1993; Rosenbloom et al. 1994) is to provide such believable agents for flight training simulations.
