Keywords: Human–computer interaction Human factors Distributed cognition Maritime surveillance User-fusion User refinement a b s t r a c t Traditionally, the focus of most information fusion research has been on computational aspects, as illustrated by, for example, different versions of the JDL data fusion model. Consequently, the human user has mainly(More)
– In maritime surveillance, supporting operators' situation awareness is a very important issue for enabling the possibility to detect anomalous behaviour. We present a user study which conceptualises knowledge to be implemented in a rule-based application aiming at supporting situation awareness. Participatory observations were used as a method for(More)
– Information Fusion coordinates large-volume data processing machines to address user needs. Users expect a situational picture to extend their ability of sensing events, movements, and activities. Typically, data is collected and processed for object location (e.g. target identification) and movement (e.g. tracking); however, high-level reasoning or(More)
– This paper reports on a brainstorming workshop with subject matter experts that aimed at identifying potential anomalies for world wide maritime surveillance. An extensive description of the workshop process and output is presented. The evaluation consists of two parts. First, the output of the workshop is compared with the output of a similar workshop as(More)
– Today's asymmetric threats put new challenges on military decision making. As new technology develops we have new possibilities to support decision making in such environments. However, it is important that the tools developed take into account users' (commanders') decision needs. This paper presents some initial user studies of Swedish commanders testing(More)
Information-and communication technologies (ICT) raise opportunities for computer supported communication, dispersed coordination and collaboration and make coordination intense organisational structures less expensive. However, an explorative case study at the Amsterdam Police Force confirm insights from prior research that deeply rooted organisational(More)
Many studies have focused on retrospectively identifying critical success factors (CSFs) for healthcare information system (HIS) development projects. In this paper the central question is how in advance selected CSFs can be applied in the best way. An action research study has been carried out in a large Swedish healthcare organization during 2010 and 2011(More)
