© 2022 IEEE.The requirements of security systems evolve as the complexity of risks and dangers increases in modern times. Due to the nature of security operations, the operator's stress and cognitive load increase, as the operators must strictly report events that occur in certain situations. In this paper, we present an alternative interface design for a command and control software traditionally used in regional security systems. We propose a mixed reality application that uses holograms and superimposition methods to enhance the operator's experience. The proposed interface is tested on four different security operation scenarios which are operational planning, unit tracking, surveillance, and alarm detection. According to the results of applied questionnaires such as NASA TLX, PSSUQ, and SUS, it has been observed that the created interface is more informative and more usable compared to the traditional command and control software in terms of security operations.
