Abstract

Real Time Decision Support System (RTDSS) is an environment, consisting of simulations, decision aids and awareness aids that are intended to represent the operational environment from a Command and Control (C2) perspective.  The RTDSS environment provides situation awareness and supports dynamic re-tasking of strike and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) assets for Time Critical Target (TCT) prosecution as a means to evaluate the decision and visualization aids.  The system was developed for conducting experiments involving the visual representation of and interaction with operational information.  It can serve as a basis for testing C2/TCT processes, procedures and training.  This demo will showcase the RTDSS environment and its capabilities.

Short Bios

DAWN TREVISANI is a Computer Scientist for the C4ISR Modeling and Simulation Branch, Information Systems Division, in the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Information Directorate; in Rome NY.  Her research interests focus on enabling technologies and more specifically, model abstraction.  Prior to joining AFRL in 1999, she worked in computer security and Unix system administration.  She received both her A.A.S and B.S. degrees in Computer Science and will soon complete her Masters degree in Computer Science at SUNY Utica/Rome. 

 

ALEX SISTI is the Technical Advisor for the C4ISR Modeling and Simulation Branch, Information Systems Division, in the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Information Directorate; in Rome NY.  He has been actively applying his modeling and simulation research interests in a variety of Air Force programs since 1982.  He received the A.A.S degree in Accounting in 1975, a B.S. in Computer Science in 1982 and earned his M.S. in Computer Engineering from Syracuse University in 1989. 

 

JEROME REAPER has been an employee of SAIC since 1995.  His primary responsibilities have included the definition, integration and operation of distributed simulations within the USAF.  Mr. Reaper has over 18 years experience in real-time and constructive simulation, including manned and hardware-in-the-loop based simulations.
