Abstract: With ever-more intelligent technological capabilities and particularly the increasing availability, modes, and transmissibility of information that can reshape our understanding of the global context and human action within it, opportunities exist for advancing the mechanisms that we employ to train personnel and perform complex team operations. We propose that future mechanisms can be developed to enhance military team performance, for heterogeneous human-intelligent technology teams through technologies that focus on enhancing teamwork, or team states and processes, through individualized information, processing, and behavior for each team member. We discuss the potential capabilities of these future mechanisms, articulate why we believe these capabilities can be developed, and outline the critical scientific questions that must be addressed to enable this future vision.
