Automated Communication Analysis for Interactive Situation Awareness Assessment
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Military and intelligence operations are highly dependent on the presence of cohesive and effective teams to carry out their missions. In these team operations, rapid and accurate development of a shared, accurate picture of the tactical situation is critical for effective team operations. This Phase I SBIR seeks to employ state of the art techniques in situation awareness theory, cognitive task analysis, communication analysis, and Social Network Analysis (SNA) to develop and validate a computational model of team SA. This computational model can be used to both predict and assess team SA. The Phase 1 program will result in the development of an initial model of the formation of Team SA in a military tactical domain based on SA communication analysis, team member experience and team tasks being performed. This model could eventually be used as a diagnostic tool to predict team SA for a wide variety of teams when considering the impact of changes in the factors in the underlying model.
