Abstract:

The report describes the I-X framework and its application to personnel recovery. When the I-X framework is instantiated with a domain-specific model, it is referred to as an I-X application. Such an application has been developed during the Co-OPR project for the task of personnel recovery and personnel recovery training. The I-X technology was applied to develop a tool that can be used to support collaborative personnel recovery as observed at the US Joint Forces Command USJFCOM Joint Personnel Recovery Agency JPRA Personnel Recovery Education and Training Center PRETC. The application was evaluated through a series of experiments that were conducted at AIAI in Edinburgh using remote observation and later at USJFCOMJ9 experimental facilities in Norfolk, VA. The report describes the experimental set-up that was used to evaluate the Co-OPR application and how the execution of these experiments was performed. Finally the results of these experiments are presented and analyzed, showing that the I-X framework provides a number of useful features that can be exploited for personnel recovery task-support applications.
