Abstract
This proposal is for Phase II continuation of a Causal Model-Based Measurement and Visualization System (CMVS) for Team Performance in Command and Control of Unmanned Systems. Our Phase I accomplishments that justify Phase II continuation are: (1) Development of a unique Dual Track Transition strategy that will provide our CMVS products directly to the operational environment with the help of Boeing Phantom Works, and also to the NRL-IMDA laboratory environment for complete modeling and rapid, cost-effective evaluation of futuristic autonomous concepts; (2) Full realization of the Phase I objectives, including a complete proof-of-concept CMVS that demonstrates the major functions of the CMVS for measuring performance of complex UAS-human teams of teams, diagnosing problems and areas for improvement, predicting future performance, and evaluating candidate technology interventions; (3) Development of a clear Operational Naval Concept and Operational Utility Assessment Plan; and (4) Development of a Phase II and Options project plan that will allow us to meet the major technical challenges in this project. The key element of our technical approach is the innovative use of an evidence-based Integrated Team Causal Performance Model (ITCPM) that represents the influence of diverse skills, technologies, interventions, and task conditions on both team process and mission outcomes.
