Power duo Kevin J. Anderson and Doug Beason team up in Kill Zone, a perilous disaster thriller for the modern age. Deep within a mountain in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a Cold War-era nuclear weapons storage facility is being used to covertly receive more than 100,000 tons of nuclear waste stored across the US. Only Department of Energy employee, Adonia, and a few others including a war hero, a senator, and an environmental activist, are allowed access to perform a high-level security review of the facilities. But Hydra Mountain was never meant to securely hold this much hazardous waste, and it has the potential to explode, taking with it all of Albuquerque and spreading radioactivity across the nation. This disaster situation proves all too possible when a small plane crashes at a nearby military base, setting off Hydra’s lockdown and trapping Adonia and her team in the heart of the hazardous, waste-filled mountain. Now, the only direction for them to go is deeper into the mountain, through the tear gas and into a secretive area no one was ever supposed to know about.

A Cognitive Framework for Battlefield Commanders' Situation Assessment

Situation assessment is an essential component of battlefield planning. This report describes a cognitive framework for situation assessment, based on research in cognitive psychology and tactical planning and on interviews with command staff. The report describes the framework in terms of three key components: memory and knowledge structures; actions, goals, and values; and monitoring and regulating cognition. It defines structural constraints and modes of processing (procedural versus knowledge-based and analytic versus intuitive) in terms of these components. It describes paths through the framework, illustrating them with concrete examples based on experiences of command staff. Finally, the report discusses characteristics of proficient situation assessors. Among the knowledge structures used by situation assessors to frame situations are enemy plan structures, enemy goal structures, temporal plan execution structures, enemy planning/command and control structures, and terrain structures. Situations may be framed proactively, predictively, or reactively. Metacognitive processes test the completeness, reliability, and consistency of situation models and plans and guide the activation of additional knowledge to flesh them out, replace weak assumptions, or resolve conflict. The framework provides a foundation for improved situation assessment performance through training, materiel, computer aids, procedures, organizational structures, or personnel selection.
