Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL CONCEPTUALIZE UNIQUE ADVANCED INFORMATION DISPLAYS TO SUPPORT TACTICAL DECISION MAKING IN A SHIPBOARD ENVIRONMENT, AND DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPLEMENTING THE DISPLAYS IN REAL-TIME USING DATA REPRESENTATIVE OF THAT RESIDENT IN SHIPBOARD DATA BASES AND SENSOR SYSTEMS. COMPUTER PROGRAMS TO IMPLEMENT THE DISPLAY ALGORITHMS WILL BE DESIGNED TO BE COMPATIBLE WITH A STANDARD NAVY DESK TOP COMPUTER. A TACTICAL SCENARIO REQUIRING RAPID DECISIONS BASED ON UNCERTAIN OR INCOMPLETE INFORMATION WILL BE CREATED. INTERACTIVE VIDEO DISPLAYS TO ASSIST THE SHIP IN IDENTIFYING AND SELECTING THE "BEST" COURSE OF ACTION FROM AMONG SEVERAL PLAUSIBLE ONES WILL BE CONCEPTUALIZED. MATHEMATICAL MODELS UTILIZING VARIABLES AND DATA CHARACTERISTICS OF A SHIPBOARD CONFLICT ENVIRONMENT WILL BE CONSTRUCTED AND TRANSFORMED INTO ALGORITHMS EXECUTABLE ON A STANDARD NAVY DESKTOP COMPUTER. A PROTOTYPE COMPUTER PROGRAM WILL BE DEVELOPED TO DEMONSTRATE PROOF OF CONCEPT AND PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR A PHASE II FULL-SCALE DEVELOPMENT EFFORT.
