Abstract

The United States Air Force is positioned to take full advantage of Internet2 technologies. This paper summarizes the Air Force's Distributed Mission Training Research Network (DMT-Rnet), an Internet2 based network for collaborative research and training via distributed PC-based systems. This network creates complex environments for multi-operator training and performance research. An initial phase of this program is utilizing the dynamic distributed decision making network (DDDnet) as a simulation platform. DDD simulations require important team-oriented cognitive processes such as communication and coordination, resource allocation and sharing, and decision making. in a successful demonstration, three distributed teams of teams played a DDD-based scenario and observers at distributed locations rated performance using web-based tools that allowed immediate data pooling, analysis, and feedback, within 10 minutes after the scenario run was completed.
