Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) – Atlantic is currently investigating new systems to support the VICTORIA Class Submarine command team. The program will include human-in-the-loop experimentation within a virtual environment facility known as vVictoria. The project had previously utilized human factors engineering processes such as Cognitive Work Analysis (CWA) to characterize the command team’s work environment in support of new system design. This report investigated the utility of re-purposing the results of the design-based work to assist in developing measures of effectiveness (MOE) and performance (MOP) to support project experimentation. It was found that while the design work provided a lot of information, specific augmentation for measure development was required. Further, it was found that the addition of specific mission vignettes was required to reduce the numbers of measures coming out of the design work to a manageable level. This report details the development process, results of extra knowledge elicitation and validation, and resulting MOE/MOPs.
