Abstract:

This paper briefly reviews a series of studies Liebhaber, 1999 Liebhaber, 2000 that were undertaken to investigate the practice of U.S. Navy air threat assessment, describes a model of threat assessment that was created from the research data, and proposes guideline for a threat assessment display within the context of an air defense decision support system DSS. The studies provided a theoretical and applied basis for threat assessment by defining specific cue-data relationships and detailing the cognitive processes involved in air defense situation assessment. Those processes were incorporated into a proposed model of threat assessment that was successful validated against threat ratings from experienced air defense decision makers. These data, combined with earlier work on DSS interfaces Miller, 1992 Rummel, 1995 and recent discussions with air defense officers, were used to develop guidelines for displaying threat assessment data.
