In an effort to devise a long range plan for research into the human performance aspects of Command and Control, the Army Research Institute sponsored a C2 research planning project involving experts from both industry and academe. Its purpose was to generate a 10-year plan consisting of a series of integrated, deficiency-driven research programs to help the Army improve C2 systems performance. Pre-workshop assignments and workshop activities were designed to aid the consultants in identifying human performance deficiencies in the C2 operational environment, and then to help them select a subset of the most critical deficiencies on which to focus the next 10 years of research. The pre-workshop and workshop activities also involved the identification of technologies from cognitive, social and organizational psychology and from the human factors and artificial intelligence research communities which might be developed and applied most profitably to upgrade each deficient area. Originator-assigned keywords include Battlefield automation, C2 human performance enhancement, Distributed C2, Expert systems, and Decision support.
