Abstract:

In order to optimize training effectiveness as well as the contribution of a participating simulator in a live-virtual-constructive (LVC) driven synthetic environment exercise, a method is needed to overcome the overloading of instructors in being able to manage the amount of information available in the synthetic environment with the training needs and capabilities/limitations of the simulator(s). A user configurable system of filters, display techniques, and alerting needs to be developed to provide "at a glance" training contextual situational awareness and alerting to aid instructors in this complex environment. This effort will determine a set of training and display requirements working with subject matter experts, a software layer that will implement tagging/filtering/alerting algorithms, and a set of display characteristics that will be then be used as a basis for a preliminary design for a Knowledge Display system. Phase II will build a prototype and investigate expansion of the principles learned in utilizing the prototype to large scale simulation operators and team decision making.
