To establish effective Command and Control in Combat Information Centers (CIC) onboard Navy ships, it is very important that CIC teams develop proficient coordination, communication, and teamwork skills. The Navy has supported several research programs to investigate probable methods for enhancing these skills; one such program is the Tactical Decision Making Under Stress (TADMUS) program. Alphatech, INC., conducted the Tactical Adaptation and Coordination Training experiment (TACT) as part of this program to study how Navy CIC teams adapt to changing tactical environments. This thesis analyzes data from the TACT experiment in order to identify differences between superior and good teams. Findings reveal that superior teams have better teamwork skills, experience higher subjective workloads, and have more confidence in their Tactical Action Officers. In addition, high stress caused teams to be less orientated towards teamwork and lowered their communication and coordination skills.
