SA-Oriented Interface Design for Distributed Undersea Warfare Teams-AT
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
SA Technologies will develop a series of prototype interfaces supporting the needs of Navy personnel engaged in Undersea Warfare (USW) and Antisubmarine Warfare (ASW) tasks. These interface designs are intended to be implemented by the Navy in the USW Decision Support System (USW-DSS). The methodology involved in the design of human-system technologies is based on adopting a user-centered approach aimed at enhancing user capabilities and experience via the incorporation of human factors and human-computer interaction (HCI) principles into our Situation Awareness Oriented Design (SAOD) process. Design objectives will be achieved while promoting optimal integrity with existing systems. Specifically, for this effort, we will follow the SAOD process, based on (a) an analysis of the user requirements required for developing both Situation Awareness (SA) and shared SA, gathered via Goal Directed Task Analysis (GDTA), (b) the application of SAOD, human factors, and HCI principles for the development of display prototypes, and (c) the usability and performance assessment of user-centered displays, which feedback feeds our iterative design process. Research proposed in Phase II and Phase III will result in USW-DSS user interfaces that will achieve the Navy"s goal to provide flexible interfaces supporting distributed teams of naval tacticians within dynamic environments.
