"In response to the Office of The Secretary of Defense (OSD)'s need for adaptable information assimilation systems to support the fast paced flow and complexity of the evolving battlefield in both Command and Control (C2) and direct combat applications,Soar Technology, Inc. proposes to conduct a study that will address both the multiplicity of information sources and the need to support rapid warfighter decision-making while preventing information overload. This study will identify the warfightercognitive readiness criteria, information delivery dimensions, and cognitive and perceptual regularities and limitations that will support configurable information delivery to the C2 or battlefield warfighter. Innovative features of this solution include;the design of flexible information delivery heuristics, the development of a high-level language to encode the heuristics, and their embodiment in an intelligent user interface design based on intelligent agents that will directly place the heuristics inthe information-processing pipeline. This solution will not only have wide military application, at multiple levels of Command and Control and battlefield systems, but also in application areas as diverse as industrial and manufacturing control, lawenforcement, emergency response management, air traffic control, and medical information systems. Anticipated Benefits: 1. Performance improvements in mission-critical and safety-critical systems i
