Abstract
DREV is investigating concepts for the development of a computer-based, real-time decision support system that can provide combat system operators with advanced support capabilities for countering the current and anticipated threat to the Canadian Patrol Frigate. Among its principal roles, this system will continuously take in dat afrom the ship's sensors and other information sources; support the formulation, maintenance and display of an accurate tactical picture derived by fusing all available data, leading to enhanced situation awareness; and assist in determining and selecting a response to anticipated or actual threats. This document examines a range of concepts for the design of the system, focusing on automation, cognitive and methodological issues. It also exposes preliminary ideas of a novel model-based framework that is being developed to support design.
