Abstract:

The Royal Australian Navys Advanced Combat Survivability Course was observed to inform the construction of a combat survivability job task analysis survey. From observations, 29 tasks were identified and subsequently incorporated into a pilot survey that was administered to combat survivability subject matter experts. A focus group was then held with those experts to obtain feedback on survey design and content. The pilot survey resulted in a more detailed task list, a restructuring of answer options and a refined introductory script. The refined survey will be administered to a large number of personnel across a range of platforms, rates, ranks and experience levels to gain subjective ratings on key task parameters. The outcomes of the survey will inform the development of comprehensive field observations and simulations of whole-of-ship tasks.
