Project: Investigating Soldier Reliance on Automated Combat Identification Aids

Dates: 2013 - Present
Participants: Jamieson, G., Hollands, J., Reiner, A. J.
Collaborator: Defence Research and Development Canada
Description: This project evaluates the benefits of various forms of automation being developed for potential military application. These forms of automation typically focus on increasing soldier awareness or assisting in decision-making during combat. Examples include identify friend or foe combat identification (CID) and automatic target detection (ATD) systems. The current focus of the research is on ATD, which will assist soldiers by highlighting individuals on the battlefield to facilitate improved detection. The goal is to determine how ATD might effect target identification under different conditions, such as varying detection reliability and error rate.
