AbstractThe opportunity exists to develop an innovative information delivery solution that will enhance warfighter performance in the context of the "Net Centric Battlespace" and take advantage of developing revolutionary command, control, and communications capabilities. The current effort proposes inserting humans and machines into a closed loop system, where information display is dynamically adjusted based on real-time EEG recordings to optimize individual and shared SA and related decision-making processes within a command center team, which mirrors the approach taken by the Augmented Cognition efforts driven by DARPA in capturing real-time brain signatures to drive information display adaptation. This proposed effort is unique in that (1) the specific EEG signatures to be developed under this effort aim to measure individual and shared situation awareness and (2) substantial effort will be devoted to identifying truly innovative principle-driven multimodal information display strategies that support effective communication and decision-making. We see the true innovation of this effort as the proposed adaptive, configurable, and considerate information display strategies that should greatly enhance individual and team decision-making through enhanced shared SA and optimal communication of critical information in appropriate modalities across team members. The end goal is to measurably improve the speed and quality of both individual and group communication and decision-making.
