Not Available Monterey Technologies, Inc. proposes a nine-month program to analyze, develop and demonstrate next-generation interfaces for space operator consoles. As space operations continue to grow in complexity, and as the capabilities of digital technology accelerate, the need for well-designed controls and displays, and appropriate implementation of innovative user interfaces becomes apparent. The limits of the operator's capabilities now can become exceeded by the overwhelming increase in the availability of displayed information. The objective of the project is to improve the space operator's situation awareness and mission performance through improvements to the functionality of their consoles. To that end, Monterey Technologies, Inc. will first conduct a technology survey, top-level mission analysis, function analysis and user needs analysis. The technical feasibility of technologies in the 2005 timeframe will be assessed. These analyses will lead to a preliminary specification of requirements for a prototype console interface. Finally, a rapid prototype demonstrating the feasibility of the selected technologies will be completed in Phase I.
