Modern military operations are increasingly complex and increasingly electronic, and this often has the effect of increasing operator workload; the systems have incorporated many technological developments, but they have not kept up with our increasing understanding of the cognitive capabilities of the operators themselves. Though there is a recently renewed, increased interest in establishing a system"s usability and utility during development in order to mitigate the increasing technology-workload mismatch, there are more dramatic possibilities for improvement. Neurocognitive Patterns one such possibility. It is a system that will combine neural signals, user behavior, and contextual knowledge to determine when a user has a goal, and what that goal is. It will plan ways to accomplish the goal, present them to the user, and execute the plan that the user chooses. Users will wear equipment to collect neural signals but will otherwise engage with their workstations in the normal manner.
