In Command and Control (C2) environments, the technological interfaces are required to support the human performance in Situation Analysis (SA) and Decision-Making (DM) tasks. In fact, the quality of the human performance is highly influenced by the quality of these interfaces. To adequately develop these interfaces, a multi-disciplinary team composed of system designers and human factor specialists must be formed. The interfaces developed from the efforts of these specialists must also be evaluated from both human performance and operational perspectives. It is primordial to evaluate the human performance improvement brought by new interfaces, and to analyze new problems created by the introduction of these new systems that change the overall dynamic between the human and the task. The objective of this report is to present CODSI (Command Decision Support Interface) as an experimental environment in which the efforts of systems designers and human factor specialists are coordinated. The main objective with CODSI was to develop "a tool", having maximum flexibility and with no a priori restriction, to investigate human-computer interface concepts and technologies for the enhancement of Situation Awareness (SAW) quality in computer-based SA and command decision support systems for complex environments such as C2.
