Abstract
The decision-making process in Command and Control (C2) is complex. It has to be performed in uncertain, dynamic and time-stress situations. The objective of this memorandum is to address the problem of decision-making in such environments from a human factor perspective. Different decision-making models are analyzed according to their applicability to C2 environments. According to this analysis, it seems that the Recognition-Primed Decision model (RPD) is the most appropriate model. This human information processing oriented model provides a more detailed description of the processes than the OODA loop model that is often used to represent capacities and limitations related to the decision-making process. Such identification is critical for the establishment of relevant design requirements from which decision Support Systems are developed.
