Abstract:

The U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences ARI developed a prototype personal-computer-based Unit Performance Assessment System UPAS to collect network data from simulation networking SIMNET exercises to support collective training feedback and research. The UPAS used network data to drive an exercise replay from an overhead view and extracted data for loading a relational database management system tied to data summary graph and table editors. This report describes testing and refinements in the UPAS. We implemented new data filtering systems, created new data types displays, modified data displays, improved user interfaces in response to feedback from trainers. The findings of this research provide input for the design of feedback systems for future applications of distributed interactive simulation DIS.
