AbstractThe product of this research will be the design of the Janus HCI Toolkit and a plan for its operational evaluation during Phase II. Janus will provide a set of composable and modifiable displays to support supervisory control of multitasking and mission reconfiguration. The Toolkit will contain 1) mission displays with high level task and situation status information, 2) attention management tools that promote awareness of changes and support interruption recovery, 3) methods that allow users and designers to quickly define and activate those composable display configurations. These tools will be designed to apply to a broad range of Navy C4ISR contexts. PSE has a 20 year program of scientifically-based research for developing tools that are fleet-proven for transition to operational use in such acquisition systems as Advanced Tomahawk Weapons Control, Electronic Warfare Control, and the Global Command and Control System. PSE works from a strong scientific base to develop tools that are fleet-proven for transition to operational use. The Janus Toolkit supports decision-making processes and facilitates improved understanding among Joint and Coalition commanders. Janus will offer commanders and other users displays and portals to reconfigure tasks, maintain control of force allocation, and maintain awareness of mission accomplishment.
