Abstract"This Phase II will develop the Warfighter Analysis & Readiness System for Mission Unit-Level Planning (WARMUP). WARMUP is an information technology capability designed to support a continuing cycle of mission analysis throughout planning, briefing,execution, and debriefing. Though developed for use with distributed mission training (DMT), WARMUP's design also supports integration with the operational training environment. Its conceptual foundation stems from mission planning content and processesrepresented using Unified Modeling Language (UML) that capture the information, behavioral activities, contexts, events, and products comprising the planning process. This model will be extended to derive deep-level, skill-based indices of effectiveplanning and briefing. The UML model will then feed the specification of WARMUP software components that collect, analyze, and generate products from these indices. Components include a data collection device used by subject matter experts; a softwareagent to extract and analyze quality indices from a DMT simulation or flight line debriefing system; and an updateable, scaleable relational database to organize the data and indices. By exercising this database through structured queries, the WARMUPapplication will generate such products as a scenario-specific scorecard of planning/briefing quality, web-enabled best-practices material, and empirical data to support future R&D, among others."
