Abstract
Modern military systems operate in dynamic, multidimensional environments and employ a variety of sensors, models, and displays to provide situational assessments for decision making. Given the extreme complexity of managing such a battlespace, the core element of these platforms is often a computer-based command and decision system. Included in these systems is doctrine that guides the decisions of automated components and operators. For example, rules of engagement doctrine dictates when and how force should be used against a threat. Complicating the situation, the data in these environments are rife with uncertainty, and decisions must often be made in short timeframes. Consequently, the doctrine-driven decision making process is not deterministic in nature. To address these issues, Aptima is proposing the development of LUCID (Limiting Uncertainty in Command Information Displays). At the core of LUCID are model-driven visualizations that enable the quantification of uncertainty and provide an intuitive view of the uncertainties associated with doctrine-driven decisions. Working with Lockheed Martin, Aptima will identify scenarios involving uncertainty and gather data and doctrine related to AEGIS. This will drive the development of model-based visualizations with the ultimate goal of integration into the AEGIS workflow.
