Abstract
TII SHALL PROCURE, DESIGN, CONSTRUCT, AND TEST A COMPACT PORTABLE SIMULATOR CAPABLE OF EMULATING NUCLEAR POWER STATION-OPERATOR (NPS-OP) INTERFACES, AND EVALUATE AND TEST VARIOUS INTERFACE DESIGNS. THE SUMULATOR WILL BE DESIGNED FOR OPERATOR TRAINING ON ADVANCED REACTORS AND WILL BE USED IN SIMULATING OPERATORS SCENARIOS AND RECORDING AND DOCUMENTING REAL-TIME INPUT FROM THE OPERATOR. THE SIMULATOR MODULES WILL BE CAPABLE OF BEING EXPANDED AND UPDATED TO REFLECT FUTURE SYSTEM DESIGN MODIFICATIONS. TEST AND EVALUATION (TAE) TOOLS WILL BE PROVIDED TO TEST OPERATOR RESPONSE TO ALTERNATE NPS SUBSYSTEM DESIGNS AND TO DETERMINE OPERATOR LOADING, INCLUDING COGNITIVE LOADING. THE COMPACTNESS OF THE SIMULATOR ALLOWS FOR CONDUCTING HUMAN ENGINEERING TESTS AT ANY LOCATION. BEING PORTABLE, THE SIMULATOR CAN BE TAKEN OUT TO THE PLANTS FOR TESTING PROPOSED INTERFACE DESIGNS PRIOR TO FINAL DESIGN FREEZE FOR THE SYSTEMS. THE SIMULATOR'S ABILITY TO RECORD AND STORE OPERATOR RESPONSES IS A VALUABLE TOOL IN STRUCTURING THE TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR THE OPERATORS TO SHARPEN CRITICALLY NEEDED SKILLS AND RESPONSES.
