Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A METHOD OF GENERATING EFFECTIVENESS MEASURES FOR USER TESTING OF C2 SYSTEMS. THE MEASURE, CALLED A "MOMENT-TO MOMENT" (MTM) MEASURE, INDICATES THE IMPACT OF PERFORMANCE OF EACH COMMAND GROUP TASK ON OVERALL BATTLE SYSTEM EFFECTIVENESS. IN ADDITION TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A METHOD FOR GENERATING THE MEASURE, IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A MTM MEASURE FOR A SELECTED BATTLE SYSTEM, OPERATING IN A SPECIFIED ENVIRONMENT, AND PERFORMING A SPECIFIED MISSION. THE MEASURE WILL ASSIST USER TESTING BY HELPING IN THE DESIGN OF THE TESTING, IDENTIFYING WHICH VARIABLES TO OBSERVE AND COLLECT DATA FOR, AND SPECIFYING THE DATA PROCESSING REQUIRED TO ASSESS THE COMMAND GROUP TASKS AND OVERALL BATTLE SYSTEM EFFECTIVENESS. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL INCLUDE DEVELOPMENT OF A SINGLE MEASURE, BASED ON ONE C2 MISSION SELECTED FOR INVESTIGATION. IT IS EXPECTED THAT FIELD TESTING AND EVALUATION OF THE MEASURE WILL BE PERFORMED IN PHASE II.
