Ontar"s technical objective for this program is to develop a hardware and software solution for both understanding of and augmentation of cognitive readiness at both the individual and command levels. During Phase I we will define the following features and capabilities: Develop a detailed conceptual design for the applicability of a hand-held touch screen hardware/software cognitive readiness solution; Identify potential applications capable of measuring and augment cognitive readiness of an individual; Develop a framework for information sharing and data fusion within a network of individuals and across applications; And provide a limited demonstration of the technical feasibility of the conceptual design. Ontar will do this by developing a training system that can help commanders understand the levels of cognitive readiness for each of the individuals in the unit. With the help of Ontar"s Learning Content Management System, an acceptable training strategy, sensors to measure the neural, behavior, and cognitive measures of each individual"s score will be compiled for each individual and team through a complete hardware software system on a handheld device.
