Abstract
One way of containing workload, in times of excessive demand, is to have an adaptive system that dynamically off-loads the opertor of lower priority tasks and/or provides other assistance as necessary. Such a system needs knowledge of the operator's current goals and objectives, through an explicit user model, in order to provide timely and appropriate help. A study was instituted to investigate the feasibility of identifying the operator's plans from observations (key strokes, selected items, sequences, etc.) made at the system interface. Phase 1 of that study, which investigates plan recognition within a simulated air traffic control task, is the subject of this interim report. The report describes: (1) the conduct of an experimental in which human subjects performed a simulated air traffic control task; and (2) work on the design and development of a plan-recognition system based on the results of that experiment. Validation of the plan-recognition system forms the second phase of this two-phase study and will be carried out under separate contract.
