Abstract

A method for analyzing communication transcripts was employed to explore the relationship between task coherence and operator interactivity as a measure of team and distributed situation awareness. The method takes advantage of the entropy within a system and uses this as a measure of order within the task processes and operator input. We posit that this new way of measuring and analyzing situation awareness not only supports the notion of distributed situation awareness as an emergent property of a system but also eliminates the problem of intrusion and reliance on operator self-reporting which current methods pose.
