Abstract:

Final report describes the results of a study to investigate methods of implementing a pilot or interim manmachine subsystem for the CNO CommandManagement Information System and to develop a plan for utilization of that subsystem. Three alternate configurations were examined a display capability integrated into an existing large scale computer 1108, a display subsystem developed for an existing computer 1410, 7090, or 9300, and a display subsystem developed for a new stand alone processor. A trade-off analysis was performed to evaluate the three alternatives based on seven application specific criteria and the third alternative was recommended. Software modules for the subsystem were specified to include information handling, computational, and graphic display modules. Experimental procedures involving briefings, training, test runs, measurements, and questionnaires were designed in order to evaluate system performance, derive future manmachine configuration requirements and demonstrate system capability to inferface with the data base.
