EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS
FOR
A FLEXIBLE TEAM TESTING ENVIRONMENT
Prepared by Stacey D. Scott, Mary L. Cummings
September 27, 2005
1. Overview
In order to conduct the research proposed in the Collaborative Time-Sensitive Targeting report
(HAL technical report HAL2005-03, August, 2005), a new team testing environment must be
created at the MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory. This testing environment will require
several technological components, loosely described in the research proposal. This document
provides further details of these components and the estimated costs of acquiring this equipment.
In complex team environments, such as those in which military personnel are prosecuting timesensitive targets, there are typically many people performing various related, yet distinct task
activities. Each team member contributes their own skills and duties to the overall performance
of the team activities. Often different team members need access to different types of
information in order to perform their particular duties. For instance, an operator supervising
several Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) during a surveillance task may need to know the
status of each UAV, and may also need to access video feed from each UAV to monitor his area
of responsibility. On the other hand, that operator’s mission commander may be more interested
in knowing which areas of a larger geographical area her team has currently surveilled and which
areas still need some attention. Knowing the overall status of her team’s mission will also help
her report back to her superiors, who are busy managing many teams, performing many parts of
the overall mission.
The physical characteristics of different display technologies (e.g., size, proximity, number of
displays, and mobility) that may be present in these complex environments make each display
technology more or less suitable for particular individual and collaborative uses and interactions.
This issue has begun to be explored in corporate and design environments (Mandryk 2002;
Russell 2002; Ryall 2004; Inkpen 2005), but has received little systematic investigation in
complex, time-critical environments. However, since the consequences of communication and
coordination breakdowns in these environments can be more severe than in typical corporate or
design settings, understanding how to best utilize the display technologies in these environments
may help reduce such collaboration breakdowns and enhance the overall effectiveness of these
technologies for both individual and collaborative use.
The research activities discussed in the Collaborative Time-Sensitive Targeting research
proposal involve a systematic study of the impact of different display technologies on individual
and team performance in a complex, time-critical environment. These research activities also
involve the development and evaluation of software tools to enhance collaboration in this type of
1/20
environment. An integral part of this research is to develop an understanding of how the design
of the software and the hardware (e.g., physical properties of the displays, configuration of
individual consoles, etc.) in team environments influence each other and how we can leverage
the strengths of each to provide an effective overall task environment.
In order to conduct these research activities, the HAL team testing environment will require a
variety of information displays. Furthermore, in order to understand the impact of the relative
positioning of these displays on individual and team performance, this environment will need to
contain reconfigurable operator consoles. To meet these team testing environment requirements,
we propose the following equipment components:
1. Networked, large-screen wall displays
2. Reconfigurable individual operator consoles
3. Mobile team workstations
4. Collaboration server / data analysis workstation
5. Data capture equipment
The following section provides more details for each of these components. Section 3 then
provides an estimated budget breakdown for these components.
2. Components of the Proposed Team Testing Environment
2.1. Networked, large-screen wall displays
Large-screen wall displays are becoming a ubiquitous part of current military command and
control environments (Jedrysik 2000; Dudfield 2001; Smallman 2001; Jenkin 2004). These
displays are often used to provide team members with the ‘big picture’ and are often referred to
as ‘situation displays’ because they are typically used to display maps and status information
related to the overall battlefield situation (Jenkin 2004; Peel 2004). Yet, the best use of these
large displays in command center operations remains a challenging issue because various team
members, each performing different aspects of the overall task, are all potential consumers of the
information on these displays.
This research project will specifically explore teamwork that occurs in relatively confined
spaces, similar to teamwork that might occur in the tight confines of a naval vessel or in a mobile
surveillance truck. Even in such tight quarters, however, there is still a need for a mission
commander or the team members in general to maintain an overall awareness of the ‘big picture’
and an understanding of how their activities fit into this picture. In order to explore various
software visualizations to provide relevant situation awareness information, the HAL team
testing environment will contain several large-screen displays, mounted along the walls of the
team space (‘A’ in Figure 1).

Figure 1. The display components of the HAL team testing environment: (A) large-screen wall displays, (B)
reconfigurable, multi-display operator consoles, and (C) small, mobile displays (e.g., a TabletPC).
Each large-screen wall display will be driven by a display server, connected via the Internet and
underlying collaboration software to the other computers in the team space, as well as to any
external collaborators’ computers which may be involved in future joint experiments. Finally,
the wall displays will include touch-screen technology to enable team members to interact
directly with the digital data being displayed on these large-screen displays in order to facilitate
collaborative planning and decision-making among team members.
2.2. Reconfigurable individual operator consoles
There has been a great deal of effort put into redesigning the operator console of the future for
many military command and control settings (Hamburger 1999; Osga 2000a; Perry 2000), for
example, the US Navy’s Multi-Modal Watchstation (MMWS) was developed over several years
of modeling and user testing (Hamburger 2001). While these new operator consoles have been
optimized for the task activities of many types of operators in command and control
environments, there has been little consideration of how these immersive-style console designs
impact team performance in these environments (Osga 2000b).
In order to investigate the impact of the design of individual operator consoles on team task
performance and the impact of the relative arrangement of multiple individual operator consoles
3/20
on individual and team task performance, the HAL team testing environment will contain several
reconfigurable individual operator consoles. Since most futuristic operator consoles consist of
multiple displays (Osga 2000b), the operator consoles in the HAL test testing environment will
consist of three flat-screen LCD displays (‘B’ in Figure 1). This design will enable investigation
of both open and immersive display configurations, which typify the traditional and futuristic
display designs respectively. To provide maximum flexibility in the research questions that can
be explored in this environment the operator consoles will be reconfigurable in the following
ways:
-
The relative positions of consoles within the team space will be reconfigurable to enable
the investigation of the impact of seating arrangement and visibility of other team
members’ task activities on individual and team task performance. To provide this
flexibility, the operator consoles will be equipped with sturdy, yet small and mobile
computer desks and mobile computer chairs.
-
The multi-display setup at each console will be adjustable to enable investigation of the
impact of individual console design on individual and team task performance. To enable
this display reconfiguration, the operator consoles will be equipped with an adjustable
monitor stand capable of arranging three monitors in a variety of positions.
The information displayed at each operator consoles will provided by a Personal Computer (PC)
that is connected to the other computers in the team environment via the Internet and underlying
collaboration software. Each console will also include an audio headset and a connection to the
team’s intercom system to enable communication among all team members in the room and to
other potential collaborators in other external team nodes.
2.3. Mobile team workstations
Other display technologies that are becoming more common in complex, time-critical
environments are smaller, mobile displays, such as TabletPCs and handheld computers. These
displays provide the advantage of ultimate portability, especially as wireless network
connectivity improves. These displays can also offer the advantage of being semi-private
(Mandryk 2002; Inkpen 2005). Thus, they may provide a suitable medium for team members,
such as mission commanders, who need to access classified information or wish to review
pending tasks that the team will soon have to handle.
In order to explore appropriate uses of such mobile technology in the context of time-sensitive
targeting, the HAL team testing environment will include several mobile displays (‘C’ in Figure
1), including two TabletPCs and two handheld computers. While both of these technologies are
very portable, the difference in their display sizes will likely impact the type of information most
suitable for displaying on each device, as well as how each device is used by the team as a whole
(particularly, whether the information contained on the mobile device is shared with other team
members).
In order for team members using these mobile displays to communicate with their team members
and with other collaborators outside of team space, wireless headsets connected to the local
intercom system will be included in the mobile team workstations.

2.4. Collaboration server / data analysis workstation
In order to synchronize all of the experimental team testing scenarios with underlying
collaboration software, a main collaboration server is needed. This PC server will also double as
a data analysis workstation between experimental testing phases. To facilitate analysis of any
quantitative data that is captured during team experiments, this workstation will require the SPSS
data analysis statistical software package. To facilitate qualitative data analysis from the video
data that will be captured during team experiments, and to help in the creation of demonstration
videos of new technology developed during this project, this workstation will also require the
Adobe Premiere video editing software package.
2.5. Data capture equipment
To facilitate careful analysis of the individual and team behavior that occurs during experimental
testing data capture equipment is needed. A digital mini DV camcorder is needed to capture
video and audio data of team members' interactions. These data will help provide context to the
quantitative measures that will be collected through the software during experimental trials. This
context will enable a richer interpretation of the data and ultimately, a better understanding of
how well the technological solutions being tested were able to support individual and team task
performance. Accessories for the digital camcorder will also be needed, including a tripod, a
supply of mini DV tapes, and a supply of CD recordable storage media for archiving the
experimental data.
