Abstract:

Synthetic task environments STEs are often thought of as places where abstractions of real world tasks can be researched and are often employed in research programs that address command and control C2 issues. A description of several Synthetic Task Environments that are used in command and control research programs is offered. The STEs as well as new augmenting capabilities are currently being used at the Air Force Research Lab to examine technologies, procedures, and concepts that will enhance air battle manager capabilities and situation awareness while decreasing the workload associated with these environments. A simple taxonomy is given for the selection of synthetic task environments in this domain.
