In Canada, the Marine Security Operation Centres MSOCs rapidly process a variety of information streams in order to develop shared situational awareness, which is communicated through the Recognized Maritime Picture RMP, a shared multi-modal description of all that is known. Key goals of this analysis are to 1 Understand what the observations mean, and thus 2 Anticipate what may happen next, so that appropriate action may be taken in a timely manner. The specific objectives of this contract are a Design, develop, and test how the Phase 3 Maritime Visual Analytics Prototype MVAP supports Maritime Domain Awareness MDA. b Perform validation activities usability trials for all the visual apps and widgets of the MVAP to estimate how well objectives have been met. Sections 2 through 6 of this document focus on the validation methodology and results.
