Human-System Integration

Integration Technologies

Research is focused on innovations in core areas underlying human-system integration. This effort seeks to discover, understand, and exploit the properties, principles, and mechanisms governing human-system interactions to innovate novel interfaces and stable, robust, effective control systems, as well as developing approaches to analyze, model, and predict effective human-system integration. Innovations are expected to enable human integration in varying-sized sociotechnical systems that are more effective, naturalistic, tightly coupled, and more adaptable to the dynamic user than found in today's Army.

Humans in Systems

Focuses on discovering, understanding, and exploiting fundamental principles governing the influences of the human-in-the-loop system on human dynamics and effectiveness. This effort also focuses on the human influences on overall system design and effectiveness on human-agent teams, cybersecurity, and organizational and social networks. Innovations are expected to exploit a fundamental understanding of aspects of social network dynamics; organizational structure optimization; and ethics, values, trust, social-cultural, economic, and geopolitical effects. This will enable the development of advanced technologies that influence group dynamics and performance.
