Paper Abstract

Intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) operations in urban environments can be challenging due in part to the physical proximity and height of the buildings which can cause occlusions of sensors. A potential avenue to overcome the problems presented by the urban environment could be the exploitation of immersive environments. An immersive environment would increase an analyst’s situation awareness to correctly select and position sensors for intelligence gathering. In completing a sensor management task, the operator must perform three basic actions: navigate through the environment, select sensors in the environment, and manipulate those selected sensors. The goal of this experiment was to investigate the impact that different fields of view (FOV) and different control devices had on those operator actions. While the FOV did not show a significant impact, significant differences were seen between the two control devices tested.
