Systems and Processes Engineering Corporation (SPEC) proposes to develop a handheld input-output device that supports objective, standardized real-time instructor rating of aircrew teamwork skills and behaviors. The quality of aircrew teamwork and use of resources has been cited as critical to both aviation safety and mission success. Traditional technical training curriculums have historically emphasized d rudder and evaluate. To rate teamwork skills and behaviors, instructors need a realiable and useful support system that will assist and enable them to collect information on the performance being observed. Paper and pencil methods for collecting this information are seen as cumbersome and not user-friendly. This SBIR proposes the research and development of an intelligent electronic uctor who is observing a simulation or an actual mission. To accomplish this proposal, observable behaviors and skills will be collected by a handheld device that will prompt the instructor when needed to enter or to record by voice additional information. Data can also be collected and combined with other sources to provide system feedback to improve training effectiveness.
