Abstract:

We propose to produce CINAPS - Composable Interfaces for Networked Applications - a unique environment allowing operators to effectively compose interfaces for networked command and control applications. Using the unmanned vehicle domain as a command-and-control test case, this environment will provide for flexible information composition but will do so in a task-based framework, thereby removing the penalty incurred in time and effort when users must assemble their own interfaces. Aptima will apply Cognitive Work Analysis (CWA) to develop principles for interface composability, and to realize those principles within a functioning interface composition tool, CINAPS. The result will be a flexible environment and user interface that ensures optimal operator behavior in assembling multiple information sources into a coherent display for decision-making. In Phase I, we will define composability principles through application of CWA techniques, develop a storyboard to illustrate the products and operation of CINAPS, design the functionality and software architecture of CINAPS, and plan evaluations and formative assessments. In Phase II, Aptima will fully implement CINAPS for a broad set of missions and conditions and conduct a thorough assessment of its utility and usability.
