Abstract:

An experiment was performed to evaluate the effectiveness of JUDGE Judged Utility Decision Generator, an advanced man-machine technique for allocating and dispatching missions in response to requests for immediate close air support when resources are limited. Using JUDGE, each subject evaluated the target worth by comparing it with a carefully defined standard target taken as 100. A computer program then translated these responses into dispatching decisions and evaluated them based on the subjects value responses. Using DASC Direct Air Support Center, the subject himself assigned aircraft to target, allocating any even number from 0 to 16. JUDGE is shown to be superior to DASC when measured by an expected utility criterion. Author
