Abstract:

This report describes the final version of a software system designed to support learning researchers and others in creating and delivering real time interactive scenarios in tactical decision making. The system, known as CIC, permits developers to readily produce custom scenarios involving simulated aircraft and ships, both friendly and hostile, and to collect performance data from experimental participants. Situational variables which can be manipulated include atmospheric conditions, equipment operability, lengths of time delays, as well as aircraft and ship positions, speeds, and headings. The system includes the capability to generate scenarios automatically, within specified situational variables to communicate automatically with an artificial decision making process and to provide part-task exercises in aspects of radar system operation and control.
