Abstract
This report outlines the approach, schedule and responsibilities for a preliminary user trial of the Situation Awareness Module (SAM) of the Situation Awareness System (SAS) during a battle group training exercise to be conducted in Gagetown 1-9th May 1999. Training is the main priority for the exercise and all data capture for this trial must fit in with that priority. Fourteen SAM systems and 26 Precision Lightweight Global Positioning System Receivers (PLGR) will be distributed within the unit command structure. The main focus of the trial will be on ease of use and usefulness of SAM. Observers will be tamed in pairs, one pair attached to battle group HQ and to each of two combat teams. Data capture will employ direct observation, ad hoc, interviews, formal questionnaires and a Focus Group after the exercise. Annexes to the report provide details of questionnaires and other data capture approaches. For data capture to be successful, all observers will require familiarization with SAM, the exercise, and data capture procedures.
