Abstract
The Coalition Mission Training Research (CMTR) Computer-Supported, Collaborative Work (CSCW) system allows geographically separated participants to collaborate during mission planning and briefing/debriefing. Collaboration within the CMTR environment is focused on facilitating task-oriented communication among team members. The opportunity was taken to conduct a video analysis and questionnaire survey of participants in a distributed briefing and debriefing environment during the Maple Skies simulation training event. The video analysis focused on behaviours exhibited by participants such as how many turns they had, how long each phase of the briefing lasted, collaborative tool use, gestures, and interruptions. The questionnaire survey solicited a participant’s feelings on how well the collaborative tools facilitated the distributed briefings and debriefings. The results of these investigations are reported and recommendations for future development of this work are made.
