Abstract
PREVIOUS RESEARCH EFFORTS CONCERNING THE COGNITIVE PERFORMANCE OF THE MEMBERS OF COMMAND AND CONTROL (C2) TEAMS IN DISTRIBUTED, COMPUTER-MEDIATED SYSTEMS HAVE FOCUSED ON MODIFICATIONS OF SYSTEM DESIGN TO ENHANCE COGNITIVE PERFORMANCE. MYSTECH PROPOSES A COMPLEMENTARY EFFORT THAT FOCUSES ON INNOVATIVE C2 TEAM TRAINING METHODS TO IMPROVE COGNITIVE PERFORMANCE. THE RESEARCH WILL FOCUS ON A SPECIFIC C2 ENVIRONMENT--BATTLE MANAGEMENT IN A RAPIDLY CHANGING BATTLE SITUATION. GIVEN THIS CONTEXT, "STRESS" WILL BE INTRODUCED AS AN IMPORTANT INDEPENDENT VARIABLE, IN ADDITION TO DISPERSION AND COMPUTER-MEDIATION. THE EFFORT WILL THEN TURN TO THE IDENTIFICATION OF PROCESSES IN THIS ENVIRONMENT, PARTICULARLY THOSE DUE TO STRESS, THAT MITIGATE AGAINST THE SHARING OF MENTAL MODELS AND THE MAINTENANCE OF A FLEXIBLE AND INNOVATIVE COGNITIVE STANCE IN BATTLE PLANNING. OF THE IDENTIFIED PROCESSES, THOSE THAT MAY BE ADDRESSED BY TRAINING WILL FORM THE BASIS OF A TEAM TRAINING PROGRAM TO IMPROVE THE SYNCHRONOUS SHARING THE MENTAL MODELS AND THE MAINTENANCE OF COGNITIVE FLEXIBILITY AND INNOVATION IN DYNAMIC BATTLE PLANNING.
