ARCSIN: Adaptive Real-time Control Station INterfaces
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Future operations will increasingly utilize unmanned vehicles (UxVs) to accomplish complex missions. UxV"s have the potential to dramatically improve real-time situation awareness and increase mission success. Current advancements in performance and capabilities of UxVs and automated mission planning systems are enabling a shift from direct teleoperation towards supervisory roles. With this shift, there is a need to develop intelligent human-computer interface and interaction techniques that enable a single operator to remain cognizant of the current mission status and rapidly understand the state and activities of multiple vehicles in a multi-domain environment. Operators need intuitive, simple visualizations that enable quick and effective mission-level decisions, particularly during autonomous re-planning and re-tasking that require human assistance or intervention. To develop: (1) robust human-computer interactions for facilitating coordination by human operators and automated planning technologies for rapid course of action analysis; and (2) innovative visualizations and interfaces that adapt to changing needs based on context, Aptima and our partners propose to develop Adaptive Real-time Control Station INterfaces (ARCSIN). ARCSIN provides intuitive interfaces to operators that enable them to make real-time decisions in the face of unforeseen events, visualize recommended courses of action from mission planning systems, and reduce information overload to a manageable level.
