Abstract:

In military operations and emergency management, operators and commanders must rely on distributed and automated systems for safe and effective mission accomplishment. Commanders and other decision makers must manage true real-time system properties at all levels individual operators, stand-alone technical systems, higher order integrated human-machine systems, and joint operations forces alike. In these high-risk, dynamical circumstances, management and utilization of automated command support can rapidly become an unmanageable endeavor. Coping with automation issues in command and control is a challenge for practitioners and researchers. New results, new measurement techniques, and new methodological advances facilitate a more accurate and deeper understanding, generating new and updated models. This, in turn, generates theoretical advances. This paper reports on research from which the results led to a breakthrough An integrated approach to information-centered systems analysis to support automation research and development in command and control.
