Summary form only given. The goal of the DARPA COORDINATORS program was to create hand-held coordination assistants that would enable military units to adapt mission plans more rapidly, more accurately, with less cognitive load and with a greater degree of coordinated action. In early 2005, three teams of researchers began a concerted effort to create a distributed cognitive system that could adapt mission plans online via task/resource timing/allocation and contingency selection. This talk will provide a brief overview of the COORDINATORS program, its design and execution, successes, and lessons learned.
