Abstract:

The report describes software specifically developed to facilitate the conduct of research in learning processes. This simulation-based environment provides a real-time task that can be configured by the experimenter to be extremely simple or impossibly complex and difficult The software provides features designed specifically for experimental use, including automatic generation of exercise scenarios, automatic recording of performance data, integrated coordination with an external decision-making model, exercise replay capabilities, and time-scaling. The software system also offers considerable potential as a training system, in that it can simulate airsea conditions that must be managed by a decision-maker in the Combat Information Center CIC onboard an AEGIS class vessel.
