Abstract

Current mission planning interfaces are difficult to understand and cumbersome to use, resulting in few operators using the full power of advanced planning systems. To address this shortfall, we will design and demonstrate Intuitive User Interfaces for Task-Tailored planning (INTUIT). These interfaces will increase the usability of planning systems and the efficiency of operators with varying skill levels across a range of vehicles, mission contexts, and unique tasks. INTUIT will provide targeted support to novice and expert mission planners by adapting to unique operator, task, and mission needs, as well as fluidly exposing opportunities for leveraging advanced planning functionality when appropriate. Under the proposed Phase II.5 effort, we will expand the breadth and depth of our current prototype and integrate with the Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS). We will first expand prior analyses and workflow models to characterize capabilities, tasks, and workflows of planners for expanded mission planning activities. We will then leverage these analyses and models to extend and refine our design of INTUIT displays for mission planning activities. Finally, we will use these prototypes to demonstrate, integrate and test our approaches and deeply explore the complexities of mission planning across vehicles, operators, and mission contexts.
