Abstract:

The current research program deals with ways by which the representation of battlefield information in general and information about uncertainty in particular, may enhance Decision Making, Situation Awareness SA and Sensemaking in battlespace environments Brickner and Lipshitz, 2004. Previous stages of research were based on observations by the research team in a company-level simulation experiment and a brigade-level field experiment Brickner and Sadot-Parag, 2005a,b. The present stage included observation and analysis of controlled experimental research that took place in the Israel Defense Forces Battlefield Laboratory. A Battle Management System BMS was conceptually designed by PAMAM and developed for the experiment by the BatLab. Because of the high complexity inherent in operational situations and scenarios it was decided to perform this experiment within a relatively restricted battlefield and with a low level of command. Additional, more complex, missions may be simulated and run in the future.
