Abstract:

The Robust Decision Making RDM Strategic Technology Team STT proposed and was approved to receive funding for a set of four research projects advancing foundational decision science and technology over a three year period of performance. At the time it was approved, the initiative involved 27 collaborating scientists and engineers from five technical directorates and AFIT. They brought expertise spanning cognitive science, industrialorganizational and experimental psychology, computer science, electrical and computer engineering, mathematics, statistics, and human factors. A common thread across these diverse perspectives was a view of current and future missions as enabled by integrated human-machine cyber-physical decision systems. The vision was improved mission assurance, made possible through increased robustness in decision making processes and better decision outcomes, despite the pressures and perturbations that are present in contested environments.
