We propose to develop the Model for Simulated Human Operator Performance (ModelSHOP), a behavior authoring and execution capability for injecting variable Human-in-Control (HIC) actions and decisions into Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) simulation. ModelSHOP will provide a generative model structure for representing key human performance moderators to combine in different ways to simulate variations in human performance. The resulting models produce outputs such as decisions or specific operational actions that in turn can be injected into repeated simulations. Stottler Henke will team with Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) to design and develop a practical interface layer for the HIC behavior models to interoperate with their BMD Benchmark simulation. The ModelSHOP architecture will be built upon an existing tool Stottler Henke developed for visual behavior authoring without requiring programming knowledge, which is paired with a standalone runtime engine. Phase I will result in a formalized structure for automated BMDS operator behaviors, an architecture design tailored to satisfy a cross section of target modeling requirements, and an initial prototype of sample behaviors, which will lay the groundwork for full prototype implementation in Phase II.
