Abstract
In Command and Control, decisions require the fusion of inputs from a number of subordinate decision-makers during the situation assessment process. The tactical operating environment often introduces stress into the team's decision-making process. The Office of Naval Technology in Arlington, VA has sponsored research under the Tactical Decision-Making Under Stress (TADMUS) program to study ways to minimize the degradation to the teams' effectiveness during these periods. Under the TADMUS Project, the Tactical Adaptation and Coordination Training (TACT) experiment was designed by Alphatech, INC. to test theories on individual and team training techniques that were hypothesized to mitigate the effects of stress during tactical situations of interest (high and low stress scenarios). In a detailed review of the data gathered during the experiment it is concluded that the training strategies were indeed effective in significantly altering the subject teams ability to perform under the test conditions. There were no conclusive findings that level of stress as presented in the experiment had a significant effect on the performance of the teams.
