AbstractThe effort proposed in this Phase I SBIR focuses on the need to improve the ability of the warfighter in the cockpit to find, identify, and attack mobile and concealed targets in all weather conditions. This will be accomplished through the integration ofadvanced operator-vehicle interface (OVI) technologies to enable aircrew in multi-crew cockpits to better manage and integrate Real-time in the Cockpit (RTIC) and off-board data to achieve mission objectives. JXT will investigate the feasibility ofdeveloping a Dynamic Information Filter to assist crewmembers in rapidly obtaining the most mission and aircraft system information, and coordinating and sharing it in the most effective manner to improve crew situation awareness, achieve increased missioneffectiveness and reduce crew workload. The proposed Dynamic Information Filter will assist crewmembers in rapidly identifying and sharing the information that is most essential to ensure safe system operation and successful performance of the assignedmission. It will be especially useful where changes in mission assignment and/or on-board system status drive the necessity to rapidly make decisions based on critical information that must be coordinated between crewmembers before execution. It willalso better manage information priority and delivery and help to relieve crewmembers of the detrimental effects of the
