Abstract:

The proposed modifications of the current SIMTOS were to accommodate 1 joint play wherein an Intelligence Officer G2 and an Operations Officer G3 would interact in decision making and problem solving in a simulated tactical operations center environment SIMTOS-23 and 2 to put a live G3 in a defensive D role against a live G3 in an offensive 0 role SIMTOS-OD. Past experiments had employed a computer as the players opponent. In SIMTOS-23, individual and joint scoring posed unique problems. Within a real world environment where constant, rapid, and demanding interaction is the norm, it is difficult to measure with precision the individual decision processes and use of decision aids. To achieve the basic purposes of a g2g3 simtos experiment, certain artificialities were introduced but these were minimized. This report is primarily addressed to military researchers engaged in man-in-the-loop simulations which investigate player behavior in cooperative and antagonistic circumstances.
