Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Contract: FA8650-06-M-6729
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

Two concepts that impact the preparation of future leaders are network centric operations (NCO) and effects-based operations (EBO). These emerging concepts are being formulated as we speak, yet they will be central to the set of dynamic leadership skills required in the future. In the NCO environment leaders will have the ability to be context-aware at all times thus increasing their ability to make timely and effective decisions. Future leaders must be prepared to capitalize on their ability to be context-aware by raising their state of cognitive awareness to prepare them for ongoing situational ambiguity, and to prevent information overload at all levels. These leadership skills will require new and innovative training techniques. Context Awareness Simulation Training for Leadership (CASTLE) is a network centric approach to providing future leaders just those skills, just as they're needed, in their familiar NCO environment. CASTLE will be readily accessible and rapidly reconfigurable by government subject matter experts to support current and evolving leadership training requirements. Feasible candidate computer-mediated training technologies and environments will be identified and assessed for applicability. These technologies will include the use of simulation, intelligent tutoring, educational games and exercises, and distributed training for individuals and teams.
