Abstract
The Innovative Naval COMbat MANagement Decision Support (INCOMMANDS) Technology Demonstration Program (TDP) seeks to research, demonstrate and evaluate new command decision support concepts for the HALIFAX Class frigate’s command and control (C2) system, with the objective of improving team battlespace awareness and increasing decision speed and accuracy. This work necessitates the design, development and evaluation of innovative Operator Machine Interface (OMI) concepts to support the operator’s interaction with the command decision support concepts developed by the project team. The aim of this document is to incorporate recommended standards and guidelines that should guide and inform the design of OMI and decision aiding concepts developed within the INCOMMANDS project so that they are consistent with human factors best-practice. The document includes guidance on creating a common look and feel that is compatible with existing systems, yet accommodates new developments and knowledge and the design and implementation of decision aids that are both useful and useable. In addition, guidance is provided on the selection of metrics and tools for the evaluation of both the OMI and decision aids for compliance.
