Abstract
Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI), along with their research partner SA Technologies, Inc. proposes to design, assemble and demonstrate an innovative experimental framework to develop capability for Advanced Visualizations and User Interfaces for Cyber Situational Awareness (ADVICE). The ADVICE framework is a suite of tools in an extensible framework that support the use of newer computer-human interaction technologies and newer visualization paradigms to maximize the situational awareness (SA) of the cyber system that is being monitored. ADVICE will contain interface abstractions that allow for new input paradigms such as Tangible User Interfaces (TUIs) and Tactile Output Interfaces (TOIs) that will be powered by relevant SA-oriented design (SAOD) principles that include SA requirements analysis such as Goal-Directed Task Analysis (GDTA). Additionally, ADVICE will allow a cyber SA designer to derive measurements that yield metrics relating to the computer-human experience. As a result, the cyber SA designer can ascertain which user interfaces are more effective under different situations.
