Abstract
"The vast amount of knowledge on human information processing and performance has been under utilized for solving real world problems. A typical satellite control system uses 500 to 1000 commandlets (fragmentary commands), which must be optimally puttogether for efficient and effective satellite control. Also, since satellites can be controlled from many different places, with learning and training also spread across the world, working in multiple task environments leads to increased workload, anddemands superior performance skills both in stressful and non-stressful situations. With a systematic and logical approach, existing cognitive theories can be unified with advances in computer technology to develop scenario-based assessment andoptimization programs for satellite control. Cybernet will build upon our past success in individual training performance to create a new system that will allow the measurement of team performance. Specifically, we will develop scenarios of satelliteoperation and control based on the combination of commandlets, and test operator cognitive workload by using a combination of primary measures, secondary-task techniques, physiological measures, and subjective tests. This system will provide not only forthe capability of advanced team training in complicated and stressful environments, but also the optimization of this training and creation of composite commands from commandlets."
