Abstract:

This is a report of work accomplished on on task in the project entitled Operational Decision Aids ODA, which was initiated in 1974 by the Office of Naval Research to develop aids for Navy command and control functions and make them available for incorporation in the design of future systems. The first phase of the work produced a concept for a laboratory version of an Air Strike Planning System ASPS and about 2,000 lines of operational FORTRAN code. The purpose of the laboratory ASPS was to experimentally test operator performance using variations of ASPS which differed in the amount of automation available to the air strike planner. Inputs to the concept formulation process about air strike planning needs and perspectives were obtained from A-7, A-6, and EA-6B pilots at Lemoore and Whidbey Naval Air Stations. The software implemented much of the usermachine interface for a computer and display system. A concept for a fieldable version of ASPS that can be evaluated at the squadron level was developed during the second phase of the work. That concept and a recommendation for hardware to implement the concept are documented in the report. Author
