This report describes the work that has been carried out during the first year in the project Cognitive Overview. The purpose of the project is to develop the traditional plot by means of testing how 3D i.e. visual information, sound information and voice recognition command, can improve the traditional plot and evaluate how that influence decision-making. During the year the project has developed a demonstrator called CoMap where comparative studies of 2D and 3D can be carried out. CoMap consists of a number of blocks from Norrköping that are used for urban warfare exercises by the Swedish Army Combat School, MSS Kvarn. Next year the project will continue to test CoMap in cooperation with MSS Kvarn. During an urban warfare exercise CoMap is to be used as a visual aid to plan and carry out deployment, building search, antitank missile warfighting, and two-sided warfare. The project has also supported LedsystM in an exercise based on prior research- and study activity where commercial games are used as an aid for decision-making and command and control. The project has also carried out a couple of method studies in cooperation with MSS Kvarn. The conclusion of this year´s activities is that the project can show a plot in 3D that function as a potential decision support and therefore have the means to study how it affects decision making.
