Abstract:

This report describes the MOPADSModels of Operator Performance in Air Defense Systems simulation system. The material is presented in four major sections. The first describes the Human Factors methodology that is being used to represent operator task performance and goal seeking behavior. Times for skill-based behaviors will be moderated by literature-based functions that reflect the influences of factors endogenous and exogenous to the operator. Operators sequence tasks by selecting activities that improve their goals. The second section describes the models for the ANTSQ-73 and IHAWK systems that comprise MOPADS. The operator goals and tasks that are represented are discussed. The third section discusses the computer implementation of the models. A data base is used to maintain problem parameters and to manage the communications among operators and AD units. The last section describes the computer program documentation for MOPADS. Keywords Man Machine systems SAINTSystems Analysis of Integrated Networks of Tasks.
