Abstract:

This report describes research into the improvement and assessment of an innovative decision aid known as the Strike Outcome Calculator SOC. The SOC is a computerized decision tool for use by task force commanders in estimating outcomes associated with naval air strike courses of action. The present research refined and evaluated the SOC, implementing changes necessary to enhance its usability and acceptability in the fleet environment. As such, the research can be viewed as an evolution from concept to prototype of the decision aid. An experimental evaluation plan is submitted. Author
