Abstract
The Command Decision Support Working Group will formulate a Research and Development plan for supporting enhanced operational effectiveness for the Command Team in the HALIFAX class through improved situation awareness and decision support. To aid in the development of this plan, a literature search and review was completed in two phases. In Phase I, a database of articles relevant to the naval domain was created using EndNote software. Phase II addressed the further search of the database, the review of articles, and the compilation of conclusions regarding: 1. Results, recommendations, approaches, and guidelines from studies that are immediately usable by the Navy in the upgrade of the HALIFAX class; 2. Problems in the design, development, and implementation of military tactical or operational situation awareness and decision support that have hampered or precluded success of these systms ("lessons learned") and how these problems might be avoided; 3. Issues in naval team decision support that require further research and the implications of not addressing them. This report documents the results of Phase II. The literature review serves as an overview of many different perspectives and an analysis of each perspective. Overall, the literature review is intended to provide both theoretical analysis and practical guidance. Consequently, each major subsection contains recommendations directly aimed at the HALIFAX class upgrade.
