An experimental study was performed to evaluate 1 the effectiveness of adaptive decision aiding for improving decision maker DM performance and 2 the consistency of decision behavior in a given situation. Twelve Naval officers gathered intelligence about a simulated fishing fleet on an expanse of ocean and reported its status. Nine different types of sensors gave the operator a realistic set of decision alternatives. As he performed the task, the ADDAM Adaptive Dynamic Decision Aiding Mechanism System tracked the operators decision behavior and estimated his utilities. These utility estimates are a measure of the relative worth of the information outcomes of each sensor placement.
