"Army Transformation efforts and the ongoing digitization of the battlespace have created a situation where much of the data needed to create automated AAR products in training environments is now available in actual combat environments. Using AAR systemsas operational tools, we now have the opportunity to provide military organizations with AAR-like products and operational feedback in time for them to take corrective actions during real-world missions, without additional staffing requirements.This project, entitled "Real Time Collective Performance Feedback for Combat", involves design and development of a system that will automate real time feedback to decision makers on pertinent operational activities and recommend appropriate action. Thesystem is called System to Help Identify and Empower Leader Decisions (SHIELD). SHIELD will automate the conversion of situational awareness to relevant knowledge, improving decision-makers' ability to make more timely and better-informed adjustments toorders in combat and training. SHIELD will permit units to train and fight with the same system.We will determine during this project if SHIELD should operate unobtrusively as embedded software on existing and future DoD Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) systems connected to tactical networks, or just as a separate,stand-alone system."
