1 Soldier Systems Technology Roadmap Human and System Integration Workshop Process Mr. Phil Carr (StrategicReviewGroup.ca) Château Cartier, Gatineau, Canada September, 2010

2 2 H&SI Workshop – Overall Goal To move us toward the comprehensive integration of the CF Future Soldier Systems capability areas such as to optimize overall system effectiveness, i.e.: improve and balance: survivability, lethality, mobility, sustainability, and situational awareness (C4I)

3 3 Workshop Basic Process Capability Recap & Demo: Key Deficiencies & Priorities Related H&SI Challenges, For Internal (physical/cognitive and external integration) Potential Solutions/ Technologies System Optimization R&D Focus Areas and Potential Collaborations Exploring Operational Space Exploring Functional Space Exploring Solution Space Exploring R&D Space

4 4 Functional Objective / Technical Challenge (Where to Put the Bar and When?) Future soldier needs (Performance requirements) Overall System Performance Time Technology progress Current Gap Perf. Excess ? Today Cycle 1 Cycle 2… Cycle n Future Needs Perf. Growth Baseline Performance Parameter (e.g. Bandwidth) Real Gap

5 5 Workshop Success Factors “Success” means: Discussion Contribution Collaboration Creativity Interest and curiosity

6 6 Soldier Demo – Key Integration Challenges Weight/volume Load carriage Mobility vs Protection Power Consumption Nature Anthropometrics Soldier – Vehicle Interoperability Communications Target Detect-Discriminate- Inform-Prosecute

7 7 Questions: 1.Name one human/system integration issue that was not mentioned 2.Which integration issues or deficiencies do you think are most important to the soldier system? Demo Questions

8 8 After Lunch – Seating by Theme Theme 1- Physical Integration on the Soldier Theme 2- Perceptual/ Cognitive Integration on the Soldier Theme 3- System Architecture & Inter- operability (External Integration)

9 9 Theme 1 - Physical Integration on the Soldier Soldier System Characterization (e.g. physical environment, task analyses, user characteristics) Soldier Burden (physiology, load and volume/bulk, biomechanics) Usability/ergonomy Fit/Form/Anthropometry Demographics Compatibility/Interfaces Display and Controls Hardware Tools and Processes

10 10 Theme 2 – Perceptual/Cognitive Integration on the Soldier Soldier burden (workload, information) Situation awareness Soldier interfaces to enhance perception and cognition (from displays to decision-making tools on soldier computers Displays and Controls Software (GUI) Tools and Processes Usability Decision aids

11 11 Theme 3 - System Architecture & Interoperability (External Integration) Integration/Interoperability with Other Platforms Vehicles Weapon systems C4I systems Autonomous Sensors (UXV) System Architecture Modularity/Configurability Adaptability Scalability Hardware integration/optimization

12 12 Breakaway Session Rules Sit with people from other organizations Fill the tables Choose a leader and recorder Write clearly Focus on the questions Ask facilitators for clarifications Tables 9 and 10 for discussion in French

13 13 Table Seating Rules For After Lunch C: CF/Military G: Government I: Industry A: Academia Capability/Expertise Areas: Red: Weapons Yellow: PPE Green: Power/Energy Blue: C4I-Sensor White: Human Factors NOTE: People can switch tables for each breakout session if they want, as long as the seating rules are followed. Rule 1: You cannot sit with : someone you work with Rule 2: Min: 1G, 1A, 1 C Rule 3: Max: 5 of the same capability/expertise area

16 16 14h30 to 16:00 Breakaway Session 1 Key Challenges for Each Theme (roundtable) Instructions

17 17 Question What are the 5 most important functional challenges related to your H/SI theme? What’s the problem? (you can express it as a technical challenge too) 1.E.g. critical parameter (e.g. Balance, bandwidth) 2.What should it be ? (2020 & 2025) Breakaway Session 1: H&SI-Related Challenges for Themes 1, 2 and 3

18 18 Table rules Sit with people from other organizations Fill the tables Choose a leader and recorder Write clearly Focus on the questions Ask facilitators for clarifications

19 19 Session 1: Report Back Objectives: 1.Capture the most important HSI functional challenges for each theme Let’s compile them as we go... 2.Collectively converge on about challenges, which will be used for your next exercise
