Abstract:

ONE OF THE MORE PRESSING QUESTIONS REGARDING FUTURE COMBAT SYSTEMS IS WHETHER OR NOT A SYMBOLIC RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE HUMAN OPERATOR AND ONE ATR PROCESS CAN (A) EXCEED THE TARGET ACQUISITION PERFORMANCE OF EITHER BY ITSELF, AND (B) REDUCE THE TOTAL WORKLOAD ON THE HUMAN OPERATOR. THE DOMAIN OF ATRMMI (AUTOMATIC TARGET RECOGNIZER MAN-MACHINE INTERFACE) BRIDGES ATR BEHAVIOR, AND HUMAN PERFORMANCE AND RESPONSE. THE COMPLEXITY OF ATRMMI QUESTIONS ESTABLISHES THE NEED FOR TIMELY AND MEANINGFUL INTERCHANGE BETWEEN ATR DESIGNERS AND HUMAN ENGINEERS. CREATIVE OPTICS, INC. IS PROPOSING TO DEVELOP AN ATRMMI EXPERIMENTATION PLATFORM FOR CONDUCTING EXPERIMENTS THAT INVESTIGATE THE NATURE OF THE COMMUNICATION THAT A HUMAN + ATR SYSTEM MIGHT SUPPORT. ISSUES LIKE TYPE, CONTENT, HOW, AND TRIGGERS OF INFORMATION EXCHANGED BETWEEN HUMAN AND ATR ARE THE FOUNDATION OF OUR PROPOSED PROGRAM. CONTROL OF ATR BEHAVIOR IS PROVIDED TO THE EXPERIMENTER BY MEANS OF AN INNOVATIVE ATR-I/O EMULATOR CONCEPT. CONTROL AND DEGRADATION OF THE PRESENTATION OF STIMULI IS ALSO PART OF THE ATRMMI EXPERIMENTATION PLATFORM. RESULTS TO BE PRODUCED BY THE PLATFORM INCLUDE ATR DESIGN RECOMMENDATIONS THAT THE EXPERIMENTER CAN HAND ON TO ATR DESIGNERS.
