Abstract
Tactical displays provide poor support for battlespace visualisation and for the cognitive tasks of commanders. Research funded under the auspices of the DRDC Technology Investment Fund (TIF) was conducted in the DRDC Toronto visualisation laboratory, and this work is clearly relevant to the activities of IST-021/RTG-007. This report summarizes empirical research conducted at the DRDC Toronto facility on four general themes: Frame of reference and visual momentum, perceptual bias and reference points, modeling mental operations, and visual attention and visual span. In future work we plan to implement many of these display concepts into prototype command and control systems.
