Abstract
"The battlespace warfighter environment contains a large amount of constant critical information that needs to be processed and displayed. The level of information varies widely, from pilots, to theater commanders, to situations assessors, and to fieldarmy units. The battlespace environment is very sophisticated and has fast developing situations, leading to frequent encounters with novel situations that demand adaptive problem solving skills in its operators. This rapid development of the battlespaceposes a constant challenge to its operators who have to acquire knowledge of the equipment systems, understand critical information, and also gain expertise in identifying and responding to problems. Human information processing and performancehas not been completely utilized for solving real world problems. Fortunately, cognitive task analysis uses mental models, emphasizes cognition, analyzes expertise, evaluates knowledge for the whole job, and segments tasks based on skill. Cybernetproposes to develop a system to provide not only the capability of advanced battlespace information processing in complicated and stressful environments, but also the optimization of this information flow, allowing operators to interact in large complexsituations in an effective, efficient, and optimal manner. Furthermore, Cybernet will explore the development of intelligent agents to enable better information flow and display. The proposed technolo
