4 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report outlines the Department of National Defence's approach to moral and ethical decision making outlined in the Defence Ethics Program (DEP), and considers the scientific and military research pertaining to moral and ethical decision making. This work discusses the various conceptual definitions of morality and ethics, and explores the Defense Ethics Program in detail. The DEP argues that several factors influence oral and ethical decision making, which are reviewed. Following this, both formal and informal CF training mechanisms that address moral and ethical decision making are explored. The second part of this review considers the academic and military literature relevant to moral and ethical decision making
Trust in automated systems, literature review by Barbara D Adams( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report reviews research literature pertaining to trust in automated systems. Based on the review, the report notes similarities with trust in the interpersonal domain as well as several unique dynamics & influences pertaining to trust in automated systems. Existing research has focussed primarily on trust in automation that has an executive or control function, and to a lesser extent considers trust in automation that is designed to present information to operators. Several models related to trust in automation have already been developed, and a comprehensive though preliminary model of trust in military automation is proposed. Sets of factors likely to impact the development of trust in automation are discussed, including properties of the automaton & of the operator, and properties of the context in which interaction with automation occurs. Based on the findings of the review, measures & methods to study trust in automation are considered and a program of research to study trust in automated systems is described
Creating a measure of trust in small military teams by Barbara D Adams( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report describes the creation of scales to measure trust in teams and trust in a team leader in the context of small military teams. The first section includes a review of existing literature on the measurement of trust in others, trust in a leader, and trust in teams. From this, implications for future measures of trust in teams are outlined. The second section recounts the process of creating the trust in teams & trust in leader scales, including conceptual decisions that were made during the process of scale development. The third section describes the design & findings of a study conducted to explore the psychometric properties of the first iteration of these scales, and offers recommendations for further refinement. The final section describes a pilot study exploring the use of implicit measures of trust in teams and makes recommendations for future work
Calibration of trust and distrust by Barbara D Adams( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Calibration is posited to play a key role in the development and maintenance of trust & distrust, but current literature gives little clear direction on exactly how this calibration might occur. This paper proposes a preliminary model of trust calibration and explores the process in detail. More specifically, trust calibration is initiated when mismatches occur between one's expectations about the outcome of a trust decision in comparison to the actual outcome. At this point, sense-making or an attempt to understand the violation occurs, after which responsibility for the violation is assigned. When another person is seen as culpable, an assessment of intentionality is undertaken, in which the motives of the trustee are assessed. Seeing a trustee as both responsible and as having malevolent intention sets the stage for distrust, whereas viewing this person as responsible but not malevolent simply lessens existing trust. Other factors that impact on trust calibration processes are also considered
Network enabled operations, a Canadian perspective by Michael H Thomson( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report outlines the concept of network enabled operations (NEOps), a concept that has potential to generate increased combat power by networking sensors, decision makers, & combatants to achieve shared battlespace awareness, increased speed of command, greater lethality & adaptability, & other advantages. The concept is reviewed both as a whole and from a uniquely Canadian perspective, based on an extensive literature survey and consultations with Canadian subject matter experts. Issues discussed include the need to interpret the Canadian conception of NEOps in light of the new security environment and the role the Canadian Forces is likely to play; understanding NEOps within emerging concepts in defence policy; how the stated benefits of NEOps would actually manifest themselves in operations such as war fighting, peacekeeping, & nation building, without fully appreciating the cognitive & socialization processes that underlie them; and challenges that require greater attention prior to full implementation of NEOps. These include: trust; ensuring common mental models, cognitive processes, and understanding; information overload; authority & accountability; implementation universally across the three arms of the Forces; military structure & culture; education & training; and affordability
Trust in teams : literature review by Barbara D Adams( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report reviews research literature pertaining to trust in small teams. In particular, the review relates scientific & military literature to trust, identifies factors impacting on the development maintenance of trust, and explores measures & methodologies. Based on the review, the report identifies an important distinction between person- & category-based trust and studies evidence on whether both forms of trust are likely to play a critical role in military teams. The report also identifies current research gaps in the literature and examines the nature of the link between trust & common intent and their mutual association with mental models. A framework for research is proposed to examine the nature of trust in small teams, the factors impacting on the development & maintenance of trust, and the impact of trust on team process & performance
