This report describes the results of a review of the Command Decision Aiding Technology (COMDAT) Technology Demonstrator (TD) Operator-Machine Interface (OMI) and describes its compliance with the COMDAT OMI Style Guide. The review is presented in three parts. Part one, a compliance matrix, identifies over 120 design elements of the COMDAT TD OMI that are not compliant with the COMDAT OMI Style Guide. Each of the non-compliant elements is described in the compliance matrix. The relevant paragraph (and paragraph number) from the COMDAT OMI Style Guide is identified for each non-compliant design element. Part two identifies 24 new items that will be added to the COMDAT OMI Style Guide as a result of the review. Part three covers other usability issues, identified during the review, that are not directly related to style guide items. The review notes include specific style guidance as well as other usability observations from the COMDAT TD review.
