Abstract
Valepro proposes DOMINO as an intuitive cross-cultural solution for a common user defined operating picture (UDOP) for multi-mission situational awareness across US and Coalition forces by leveraging existing COTS capabilities used to analyze the global financial markets. The common analytical capabilities resident within these existing financial software packages provides the flexibility to display volumes of multi-dimensional real-time and archived data both efficiently and in a manner that is readily understandable to the user. By transforming the overall mission domain into a market, DOMINO provides US and Coalition commanders the same tools, techniques, and displays used by global financiers and multi-national corporations to assess, plan, and make real-time coordinated decisions based upon constantly changing updates and breaking news reports. The proposed two-year Phase II DOMINO effort consists of socializing DOMINO with subject matter experts (SMEs) in the human factors and multi-national space operations areas; enhancing the DOMINO product and tailoring displays based on feedback provided by SMEs in order to address: language differences, cultural preferences, command and control differences, human computer interface differences, and multi-level security; integrating and deploying the DOMINO product into an operational test environment; and developing a DOMINO enterprise architecture approach for scalability and deployment to multiple sites.
