Summary This volume represents the culmination of a 7-yr research project called Tactical Decision Making Under Stress (TADMUS). The program was conceived in response to an incident involving the USS Vincennes, a warship that mistakenly shot down an Iranian airbus in July 1989. The goal of the program was to develop training, simulation, decision support, and display principles that would help to mitigate the impact of stress on decision making. This volume focuses on research directed at training and simulation solutions to the problem.
The volume outlines the overall background, research approach, and paradigm used by TADMUS, with specific focus on how to train decision making at the individual and team levels--especially how to provide training that will prepare individuals to operate in complex team environments. The chapters explore complex, realistic tasks with experienced Navy participants. Throughout the book, the contributors explore the research implications and the lessons learned that may guide those interested in applying the results of research in operational environments. Although TADMUS focused on a military decision-making environment, its program of research has applicability across a variety of task environments that pose similar demands on human operators.
