Abstract:

In order to achieve the Armys vision of network centric warfare NCW, Soldiers must effectively and efficiently interact with tactical networks to maintain information dominance and complete mission objectives. Soldiers must possess a sufficient amount of trust in networks for adequate mission performance. We are investigating human trust in tactical networks by establishing a theoretical framework for analysis and an approach for validation of the framework. We identify reliability and availability as network parameters that define the relationship between quality of service performance and human trust in networks. A general framework is being developed for human trust in networks, which combines singular elements of trust that results in a composite measure of trust. We also present experiments simulating mission scenarios that require situational awareness that will test the validity of the human trust framework.
