dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines whether a Decision Support System (DSS) could be of practical assistance to the U. S. Navy's shipboard Tactical Action Officer (TAO). The environment of the TAO is one of tension and information overload as he monitors the data coming in from sensors and other watchstanders and attempts to determine the tactical situation from these clues. The thesis begins with the assumption that in order to help the TAO perform his duties and reach a correct analysis of the developing tactical picture, a knowledge-based DSS could be developed to assist him by figuring out the identity of, and associated threat presented by each contact and to help him remember what the identity so far has been. Through a series of interviews of qualified TAOs, a set of requirements for such a system was developed. The results were analyzed and the subsequent design made to include analytic capabilities, Rules of Engagement recommendations, and a trackball interface featuring pull-down menus and familiar symbology.
