Abstract
Providing commanders with accurate, on-the-spot, clear, concise, usable information wins battles and saves lives. With incoming information from many heterogeneous sources, the focus has been primarily on determining what information to present, and visual ways of communicating the information. There has been less research on what makes information actionable, or on what additional communication concepts might allow commanders to assimilate actionable information. Focusing on these areas will allow more effective communication and a better understanding of the information. The team of 21st Century Systems, Incorporated and Wright State University are excited to apply our expertise and experience for this effort we call, C2-Tool for Actionable Information Display (CoolAID). CoolAID will leverage our considerable experience in situational awareness tools, melded with research related to visualizations and humans in complex systems through WSU. The prototype CoolAID framework will be created with multi-modal display technologies as well as Bayesian and evidential reasoning for data analysis. The developmental process will help isolate what makes information actionable within the sample domain and provide a variety of information presentation techniques which can be used in concert. Phase I concludes with development of a testing plan which will measure the effectiveness of multi-modal information presentation.
