Abstract:

Two current trends increasingly complex tactical teams and the growing demand for dynamic replanning have significant implications for mission planning and the ways in which it can best contribute to mission success. Effective mission planning can facilitate team coordination both during the relatively predictable phases of a mission and during more challenging mission events that require dynamic replanning or decision making. However, it is hypothesized that aspects of mission planning expertise that facilitate team coordination during dynamic replanning and decision making are not exactly the same as those that support team coordination during more predictable mission phases. On the basis of this assumption, we proposed to develop the Cognition-Centered Constructivistic Program of Instruction C3PI as a means of facilitating the acquisition of those aspects of mission planning expertise that contribute specifically to the ability of a team to respond to dynamic, on-the-fly types of mission events. This Phase I effort involved research and development conducted for the purpose of developing a C3PI system design that is grounded in theory and research and consistent with the training needs and constraints of the operational user community.
