Efficient aptitude diagnostics for military

Cope with stress and react appropriately in critical situations

To make the right decision under pressure at the exact right moment – that is the core issue for military personnel in many different positions. The Vienna Test System (VTS) helps you to tackle this issue. Special ability tests enable you to evaluate specific military-related abilities like visual short-term memory, time and movement anticipation or manual dexterity.

The VTS enables you to assess ability and personality traits of the following:

  • Special unit members
  • Pilots
  • Marines
  • Drivers
  • Recruits
  • Officers

The advantages of the Vienna Test System at a glance:

  • Wide variety of relevant special ability tests for the military.
  • Efficient selection even from a large number of candidates.
  • Personalization through integration of own tests, own norms and interfaces.
  • Automated and easy-to-understand scorings with clearly set out results, individual reports and detailed profiles.

Efficient testing with the Vienna Test System:

  • Short testing times and automated scoring save time.
  • Fast, accurate and automated scoring of test results.
  • Paperless test materials and modern test presentation conditions make for economy.
  • Standardization of test content, the test procedure and test scoring.
  • Maximum objectivity and fairness in the assessment of each individual because testing is independent of the supervisor.
  • High reliability: especially in the attention and concentration tests.
  • Detailed test scoring schemes can be used.
  • Database for management and processing of test results.
  • Database for respondent management.
  • Test batteries.

Besides the Vienna Test System, military facilities also use Biofeedback in practical training. Here is an example of the usage of Biofeedback in the Austrian military.

Since many years the Vienna Test System is used in many different military facilities throughout the world and an integrated part of military research.

The Vienna Test System in military activities:

(…) We have nowadays 21 systems and they are used frequently in different civilian and military aviation selection procedures (pilot and air traffic control operators) in Finland. Originally, we become interested in VTS because we were looking for a user-friendly computerized testing system which includes standard widely used tests like Raven's matrices as well as some more special tests for aviation selection like psychomotor and attention tests. We chose VTS because it included both of these elements. As a computerized system VTS helps us a lot compared to traditional paper-and-pencil system; the test presentation and data collection is automatic etc. (…)
Furthermore, you can collect and use your own norms based on your selection groups and add them to the system. (…) We have a very good experience with VTS and we could recommend it for others.“
