Abstract:

The Tactical Decision Process TADEP model described in this paper was designed to be used in conjunction with a series of man-in-the-loop simulation experiments to represent the information flow between the Anti-Air Warfare Commander AAWC and his operating environment. The TADEP model provides a dynamic tool for representing and situational factors and human decision processes in relation to individual and organizational performance outcomes. The model can be used to compare different decision situations by varying the tactical characteristics of the battle, by changing the information flow, or by changing the characteristics of the decision maker and his decision processes. It can be used to evaluate the results of different decision strategies during all stages of an air defense from the outer-air battle through the transition to the inner-air battle.
