During Phase I, HMI concepts were developed to facilitate work load sharing, collaboration, and interoperability of tools and displays. Attention was given to simplicity and efficiency to reduce the number of menus and button clicks, eliminate windows, and simplify controls to be more intuitive.In Phase II the conceptual displays will be developed into a fully functioning prototype and integrated with the EW NGA. Using modern HMI design patterns, these displays will reduce operator interaction while increasing the operators productivity. These HMI improvements will provide customizable and interoperable displays that result in improved collaboration amongst operators, improved identification and classification of emitters, improved situational awareness, audio analysis, and reduced operator workload. The improved HMI will follow the SWFTS style guidelines thus assuring a common look and feel with other SWFTS subsystems. The EW NGA open architecture will facilitate simplified integration and improved test and evaluation of the improved HMI.The EW operator workflows were developed and analyzed with an eye to simplification and enhancement. The revisions to operator workflows will serve as the basis for a HMI Concept of Operations (CONOPS) to be developed during Phase II. The CONOPS will be assessed and refined in conjunction with HMI testing.
