Abstract : The Tactical Decision Making Under Stress (TADMUS) program is being conducted to apply recent developments in cognitive theory and human-system interaction technology to the design of a decision support system (DSS) for enhancing tactical decision-making under the highly complex conditions involved in littoral settings or any short-fused, dynamic decision-making situation. Our goal is to present decision support information in a format that (1) minimizes any mismatches between the cognitive characteristics of the human decision maker and the design and response characteristics of the decision support system, (2) mitigates the shortcomings of current tactical displays that impose high information processing demands and exceed the limitations of human memory, and (3) synthesizes numeric data into graphic representations to facilitate the interpretation of spatial data.
