Abstract:

The multi-pronged research program is aimed at developing and empirically evaluating an integrated component approach that determines how critical task characteristics and human operator characteristics interact to produce degraded performance under high workload conditions. The approach involves four major facets 1 a synthetic task platform modeled on the U.S.A.F. Airborne Warning and Control Systems AWACs Weapons Director tasks 2 a basic processes model of human information processing dimensions 3 a model of individual differences characteristics and 4 a military relevant simulation for testing and validation of the integrated process individual differences model.
