Abstract : The primary effort was to modify the existing Siegel-Wolf operator simulation model to allow dynamic interaction with an experimental subject performing on-line in some sort of pseudo real time environment. The Siegel-Wolf model is capable of simulating task performance by a one or two-man crew to determine the impact human factors have on systems effectiveness and mission success. The BUIC III (Back Up Interceptor Control system for SAGE) active tracking task was used in this work as a representative environment. The other three phases of the effort dealt with the conceptual aspects of the model. Variables known to contribute to performance, but which were not incorporated into the model, were considered to determine their possible contribution to enhancing the model's predictive validity.
