Abstract
During Phase II, Pacific Science & Engineering (PSE) developed a composable, standardized display design called a Janus module to support multi-tasking supervision. Janus enables supervisors to scan multiple modules to quickly determine critical issues. Janus was successfully applied to the PEO C4I PMW 790 Tactical Switch, ENMS workstation to improve operator situation awareness of network status and to rapidly acquire information needed to assess and report problems. This Phase II.5 effort will apply the human system integration (HSI) considerations provided by Janus to the PEO C4I PMW 150 Maritime Tactical Command and Control (MTC2) program. The role of HSI in MTC2 is to develop logical and consistent workflows within and between applications and organizations, easy to use human-system interfaces, and proper implementation of the application designs. HSI products will be coordinated with the agile software development process, engineering teams, and the user community. These activities will reduce cost, schedule, and performance risks, and improve operational understanding and shared situation awareness. The result will not only assure greater MTC2 operational effectiveness but also will demonstrate the utility of the Janus process to a major C4I system.
