OUT THESIS IS THAT MERE CAPABILITY OF A MACHINES: INSTEAD, THE COGNITIVE TASKS ALLOCATED TO THE MACHINE COMPONENT OF A SYSTEM MUST MESH COMFORTABLY WITH THE COGNITIVE SUPPORT NEEDS AND COGNITIVE TASKS OF THE HUMAN COMPONENT.

THE PROTOTYPE SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR PRELIMINARY WORK IN PHASE I AND MORE DEFINITIVE WORK IN PHASE II AIMED AT THE EXPERIMENTAL DEVELOPMENT OF DEFENSIBLEDESIGN GUIDELINES FOR THE ALLOCATION OF HIGHER-ORDER TASKS BETWEEN HUMAN AND MACHINE IN FUTURE ARMY SYSTEMS.
