On high-speed planing boats, off-road vehicles, helicopters, and other moving DoD platforms, unpredictable platform motion limits the operators ability to interact with a conventional monitor/keyboard/mouse interface. In the case of open-cockpit high-speed boats, such as Naval Special Warfare (NSW) surface combatant crafts, the cockpit is subject to wind, rain and saltwater spray, and operators may be wearing helmets and gloves. To interact with increasingly sophisticated on-craft computers and application specific software, new HMI solutions are required to enhance the ability of the Warfighter to operate in the presence of significant turbulent accelerations. Trex Enterprises proposes to conduct a comprehensive study to identify the salient features of an ideal HMI solution for a turbulent motion environment and identify the most appropriate and feasible technologies. By leveraging past experience in novel display technology and handwriting recognition software developed by Trexs consultant, Stan Miasnikov, Trex will investigate, modify, and optimize the best HMI solution that meets the USSOCOM requirements and provides an in situ solution for the operator to improve HMI capabilities and augment current tactical engagements including craft-specific applications in challenging dynamic environments.
