The Decision-Making Evaluation Facility for Tactical Teams, or DEFTT, is a portable testbed system designed to provide a simulation environment for conducting tactical decision-making research. Teams engage in nine vignettes which provide the context for studying naturalistic decision making in a realistic environment. A primary concern was to maintain the fidelity of the Navy combat information center aboard ships for six-member tactical teams under relatively stressful conditions. Six consoles and an experimented control station are electronically linked, and actions taken by each team member are recorded as they respond to highly complex decision events. A brief description is given of the 1 research objectives including some of the psychological and engineering principles guiding the research 2 general methodological approach 3 hardware and software used and 4 some development issues related to operationalization of such a research testbed.
