Paper Abstract

The `digitized force' offers the potential for revolutionary improvements in force effectiveness. However, a possible spoiler is information overload--instances where crews are so overwhelmed with information that they are unable to process the data and make the correct decision. Lockheed Martin Systems Integration has developed decision aiding technologies to address this information overload problem. Our experience developing decision aiding systems dates back to 1985. A significant recent contrast effort was the U.S. Army's Rotorcraft Pilot's Associate (RPA) Advanced Technology Development Program. RPA culminated in 1999 with a full mission laboratory evaluation and a flight demonstration on a modified Longbow Apache at the Army's Yuma Proving Ground. In addition to the RPA Program, LMSI has provided decision aiding systems for evaluation in several Army Battle Labs. LMSI is currently developing a `Core' Decision Aiding System, utilizing COTS-based technologies, that can serve as the foundation for application to a number of platforms. This paper will provide an overview of these decision aiding efforts including a summary of capabilities, evaluation results and future research, development and production efforts.
