This is the final report documenting the AFRLHEC effort entitled Global Air Mobility Advanced Technologies GAMAT in its Phase II period. The Phase II effort was undertaken as an extension and expansion of the GAMAT Phase I effort. This demonstration capability was developed under the Air Force Research Laboratory Human Effectiveness Directorates Global Air Mobility Advanced Technologies GAMAT Advanced Technology Development ATD research and development program. The goal of the GAMAT ATD was to further the development of a new type of user interface technology called Work-Centered Support System WCSS technology. The U.S. Air Forces Air Mobility Commands command and control environment was used as the domain for development, testing and refinement of WCSS theories and technology applications. Work-Centered Support System WCSS technology is a new cognitive-science-based analysis and design methodology for developing human-computer interfaces and client applications that enable very high user productivity, especially in dynamic and information dense environments. The WCSS technology is applicable to any domain and leverages cognitive analyses and advanced user interface design techniques to provide intuitive user interfaces and client applications customized based on the work requirements. The analysis and design approach is designed to support rapid user adaptation to both routine and non-routineunexpected events.
