Abstract
Designing decision aids suitable for C2 environments requires models with a sufficient level of cognitive granularity. With its low cognitive granularity level, the existing OODA loop commonly used to represent the C2 decision cycle cannot sufficiently support the design of decision aids. In an effort to increase its level of cognitive granularity, Breton and Rousseau [8] proposed the C-OODA loop. However, this model offered few details on the control criteriabased components that govern the quality of the state produced from each cognitive process and the information transfer between these processes. The objective of this document is to address this problem by providing more details on these units and their parameters. From this, the modeling of different levels of information processing is done. This modeling effort provided the opportunity to identify potential cognitive strategies that can be used by decision-makers to overcome problems such as a high level of state uncertainty. These analyses yielded a list of cognitive processes and strategies that should be technologically supported in order to help novice and intermediate decision-makers to execute their tasks with an acceptable level of performance and to allow them to attain the expert level sooner and more easily.
