Collaborative File System (CFS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Michael E. Fotta, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $749,813.00
Abstract:
60400 The size and significance of most research, development, or business activities require teams of people to work together. However, the majority of collaborative tools today are application specific and require collaborators to develop new or additional skills with computing proficiency. … More

HEMA - a Robust, Computational Architecture for Modeling Human Error

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Michael E. Fotta, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,967.00
Abstract:
The growing use of sensors and other data-generating devices increases the chance of operator error. This is especially true of cutting-edge weapons systems, where the human operator must receive, process and act on an increasingly-complex array ofinformation from numerous sources. Human error in… More

Distributed Advanced Multidisciplinary Algorithms for Genetic Evolution (DAMAGE)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Michael Fotta, Principal Research Analys
Award Amount: $729,970.00
Abstract:
The D.N. American research and development team proposes a novel approach to improving the process of multidisciplinary optimization for composite laminate designs. In Phase I, we successfully demonstrated the feasibility of our approach to the problem. The Phase II effort leverages these results… More

HEMETS - Human Error Modeling for Error Tolerant Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Michael E. Fotta, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $449,179.00
Abstract:
D.N. American proposes the development of a Human Error Modeling tool for Error Tolerant Systems (HEMETS) which will simulate human performance on complex systems in order to provide system designers with information on what aspects of their design are likely to lead to human error. Furthermore,… More
