Pagination or Media Count:
The purpose of this study was to investigate a methodology for the ongoing analysis and design of a decision support system DSS for retasking decisions made by the fighter duty officer FDO in the Air Support Operations Center ASOC. The research had five main objectives 1 Determine through concept mapping and discussions with FDOs from the ASOC, the decision processes that he would make during retasking of Close Air Support CAS and Battlefield Air Interdiction BAI missions. 2 Establish a central decision process kernel that would benefit from a DSS. 3 Translate the initial requirements established through this analysis into a set of screen representations storyboard that the FDO can use as an initial retasking DSS. 4 Evaluate the effectiveness of the adaptive design methodology for determining initial requirements, 5 Investigate details of the adaptive design approach within this application that facilitate or hinder the methodology.
