Evaluation and Application of MIDAS v2.0 2001-01-2648

Version 2.0 of the Man-Machine Design and Analysis System (MIDAS) was released in 2001. It provides tools to describe an operating environment, mission, and equipment. User-defined goals, procedures, and knowledge interact with and are modified by models of perception, memory, situation awareness, and attention and constrained by the environment. Output of simulations that demonstrate or evaluate new capabilities or answer questions posed by customers are presented graphically and visually. MIDAS has been used to model different professions (soldiers in protective gear, air traffic controllers, astronauts, nuclear power plant operators, pilots), missions (e.g., flying, target designation, underwater exploration, police dispatch) and environments (e.g., battlefields, civil airspace, ocean floor, control rooms, low earth orbit). A recent independent evaluation of MIDAS V2.0 is reviewed.
