Title: Embedded Training in an Optimized Manning Environment
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N00178-02-C-3005
Award Amount: $100,000.00


The Phase I effort will include a detailed methodology for conducting training in the anticipated manning environment for new and evolving 21st century ship classes (DD 21, CVNX, LPD-17, etc.). A training infrastructure will be defined that willaccommodate individual and team training requirements within a closed-loop adaptive training system employing a seamless combination of adaptive IMI- and simulation-based tutoring.Sonalysts will examine several technologies during the Phase I study for potential leverage into the Phase II prototype system. These include: Afloat Training and Exercise Management System (ATEAMS), ExpertTrainTM (simulation-based intelligent tutoringtechnology), InTrainTM (adaptive interactive multimedia instruction), Variable Virtual Combat Mockup (VVCM), Advanced Embedded Training (AET) system, and the Synthetic Cognition for Operational Team Training (SCOTT).Phase II will include development of a small-scale closed-loop system focused on a shipboard Combat Information Center (CIC). This research will significantly contribute to development of a fully functional closed-loop training system that will supportindividual and team training within a total-ship environment. We anticipate that the technology developed under this SBIR topic will be employed in future naval ships (DD 21, CVNX, etc.), and within the Navy's shore-based training infrastructure.
