Abstract:

This report describes work performed during the second year of the project titled Command and Control Decision Making Requirements During Engagement Operations. The work involves the development of a human performance and training testbed for automated air defense command and control. The testbed is a flexible simulation capability for the study of issues involving human performance and training in a complex supervisory control setting. The first portion of the report addresses the testbeds objectives and integration concept. Next, the report outlines a concept for human supervisory control of a complex, automated process control environment. This concept is referred to as intelligent rule-based supervisory control, or IRBSC. IRBSC involves cooperative control of a real-time process by human operators and an expert system embedded in the command and control computer. Finally, the report outlines a research agenda for using the testbed to explore human performance, training, and performance support issues for real-time command and control systems
