Abstract : The purpose of the report is two-fold: First, to examine the potential impact of past and on-going human performance research on operational problems in assimilating information from situation displays in the field; second, to identify operational problem areas involving preparation and use of situation displays which could profit from detailed human performance research. During field operations, military staff officers maintain a representation of the tactical situation of both friendly and enemy forces. The staff element primarily concerned with the friendly force situation is the operations element (G3); the intelligence element (G2) focuses on the enemy situation. With the staffs of both elements, assimilation of information from situation displays is an important part of the job. (Author)
