26 June 1997 Advanced human computer interfaces for the Army after next
Author Affiliations +
A Human Computer Interface HCI research program is being conducted collaboratively between Rockwell, its Consortium Members and the Army Research Laboratory. The research is exploring human-computer interfaces and displays to dramatically improve the interface between Army users and their information systems. This critical link to the human must be maximized to enable the Army to fully leverage its investments in information hardware and systems for the Digitization ofthe Battlefield and the Army After Next. Research is being conducted in the areas of databases, information filtering, visualization, augmented reality, and virtual reality. It also includes the integration of novel interfaces like gesture recognition and tactile to improve the overall throughput and reliability. Constructs, algorithms and techniques are being developed to provide users common views of the battlefield regardless of the display system utilized. Future systems must consider the human to maximize the conversion of data and information into usable knowledge.
