"The primary objective of the C3PI application is to build mission planning expertise that facilitates on-the-fly replanning and decision making. The design of C3PI is influenced by a combination of past research, research conducted during this effort, andplanning and training strategies with a history of use by tactical teams. In particular, the C3PI design features planning support tools and training strategies that were selected and designed specifically to address cognitive principles of expertise andplanning expertise. The C3PI application initially will be developed to support DMT training exercises. C3PI is based on a training philosophy similar to event-based training in which the mission briefing, execution, and debriefing phases representopportunities to extend the training benefits associated with using C3PI during the planning phase. Accordingly, C3PI will integrate with DMT briefing, performance assessment, and after action review (AAR) technologies and phases. In addition, C3PI isbeing developed for collaborative use across distributed sites."
