Abstract:

The SKATE concept was designed to quantify skill levels of trainees, teams, or units, generate skill-appropriate training scenarios, and provide a continuous skill-level assessment of disparately skilled trainees, teams, and units in a joint training exercise while maintaining the overall integrity and realism of the mission itself. SKATE evaluates the skill level of an individual, teams, or unit level participants and generates a list of skill-appropriate training scenario components that can be configured into the exercise so as to fulfill the training objectives of the trainees. This will occur at the local level; however, SKATE will communicate to a central node as to the skill level of a particular participant so the overall exercise coordinator can harmonize the different mission tasks that are being performed by the different trainees. Base program: $500K, 18 months. Implement SKATE functions, conduct study to seed database, perform stakeholder demonstration. Option 1: $250K, 9 months. Modify SKATE for integration into transition platform, increase level of automation in scoring mechanism.
