Abstract
This report reviews research literature pertaining to models of human information aggregation in order to apply them, when possible, to combat identification (CID) decisions made by individuals in a land force context. In particular, the review examined social science, science and military literature to identify principles and theories associated with how human decision makers weigh and integrate information. The review identified a variety of heuristics and cognitive biases associated with these processes, along with formal and informal models of combining qualitative and quantitative information. The report presents current conceptualizations of combat identification and places it within the context of cue-based decision making under the intuitive decision framework. By framing this complex decision we were able to evaluate the applicability of the methods of aggregation to the CID task.
