Abstract:

The goal of information superiority presents an analytic challenge how to assess information technologies support to command and control. The assessment difficulty lies in the cognitive domain that the technology supports, and identifying those features of the cognitive domain that lend themselves to quantification and objective assessments. This paper describes solutions to this problem. First, we survey the Armys traditional human-in-the-loop IT assessment methods, and identify their limitations. Next, we discuss MS relative advantages in assessing IT support of C2. Our major argument emphasizes three essential requirements definition, representation and objective measurement of key C2 products, specifically of situation awareness and situation understanding of tactical decision makers.
