Abstract : In the complex and fast reaction world of military operations, present technologies, combined with tactical situations, have flooded the operator with assorted information that he is expected to process instantly. As technologies progress, this flow of data and information have both guided and overwhelmed the operator. However, the technologies that have confounded many operators today can be used to assist him-thus the Operator Performance Support System. In this paper we propose an operator support station that incorporates the elements of Video and Image Databases, Productivity Software, Interactive Computer Based Training, Hypertext/Hypermedia Databases, Expert Programs and Human Factors Engineering. The Operator Performance Support System will provide the operator with an integrating on-line information/knowledge system that will guide expert or novice to correct systems operations. Although the OPSS is being developed for the Navy, the performance of the workforce in today's competitive industry is of major concern. The concepts presented in this paper which address ASW systems software design issues are also directly applicable to industry. They will make a dramatic impact on the way we work in the future, both the military and the industry. The OPSS will propose practical applications in how to more closely align the relationships between technical knowledge and equipment operator performance....
