Abstract:

In this report, human factors engineers from Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific SSC Pacific describe the user-centered design UCD engineering process as a method to design, develop, and build sensible graphical user interfaces GUIs for command and control C2 equipment. UCD is an SSC Pacific best practice within the human factors engineering HFE domain of human systems integration to optimize the design of the C2 human-machine interface by reducing the equipment operators cognitive burden of assimilating and acting upon disparate C2 information. The UCD process follows an analytical HFE design methodology that involves direct user engagement sessions to construct cognitive models of command situational awareness, workflows, use cases, and other artifacts to directly support rapid and agile prototyping.
