Title Military Vignette for a Heterogeneous Data Proximity Tool (HDPT) Study.
Publication Date Jun 2013
Media Count 94p
Personal Author E. G. Heilman
Abstract The U.S. Army Research Laboratory is creating a software tool that has potential utility in the Company Intelligence Support Team analysis process. The tool, called the Heterogeneous Data Proximity Tool (HDPT), uses personnel attributes to produce a three-dimensional similarity diagram that contains a mapping of individuals to likely groups operating within a unit s boundaries. The HDPT prototype was field tested during the Communications- Electronics Research, Development, and Engineering Center On-The-Move (OTM) exercise. Including the HDPT in the OTM Event 12 (E12) exercise required the development of a meaningful investigational strategy along with a supporting vignette and test data that all fit within the E12 scenario. The HDPT vignette and supporting data define initial conditions and establish testing expectations for HDPT execution within the E12 scenario. During E12, Soldiers operated the HDPT prototype to determine whether performance matches expectation. The HDPT OTM vignette and supporting data are described in this report.
