Information Display and Performance Enhancement (ID&PE) technologies support future joint and service-unique warfighting needs in data visualization and situational understanding, aural and visual interface, immersive interface, intelligent aiding and decision support, decision-centered staff process control, supervisory control and teleoperation, and physical aiding.
Design Integration and Supportability (DI&S) technologies support the fielding of affordable, effective equipment needed for future military operations and support by advancing the state of the art in human system design tools, performance requirements estimation, performance metrics, human-system integration, logistics readiness, and sustainment logistics.
Warrior Protection and Sustainment (WP&S) technologies support warfighting and peacekeeping mission capabilities through full spectrum personal protection; troop sustainment, including rations and field feeding equipment; aircraft escape/crash safety, survival and rescue; advanced airdrop (both personnel and cargo); and dismounted, mounted, and aircrew warrior systems integration, including warfighter systems analysis.
Personnel Performance and Training (PP&T) technologies strengthen unit readiness and reduce costs (e.g., selection, school/job assignment, retention) through advances in force management and modeling, selection and classification, human resource development, simulation-based training, training strategies, and training efficiency.
The impact of these technologies include (1) substantial increases in unit readiness through more robust training techniques while reducing costs, (2) improved mission performance through the effective integration of advanced displays and information management systems with a warfighter-centered decision process, (3) casualty reduction from enhanced protection and escape systems, and (4) enhanced mobility by better logistics and troop sustainment technologies.
