Abstract:

In modern warfare, the knowledge and skills of individual warfighters are often stretched beyond capacity in attempts to successfully execute increasingly complex missions. As a result, environmental stressors that accompany high-tempo operations, such as accelerations in time pressure to complete a task, can reduce cognitive readiness and disrupt team cohesion as well as warfighter effectiveness. The goal of this SBIR is to define, prototype, and (in Phase II) integrate a fully functional version of CAPTURE: the Cognitive Assessment Program for Tracking Unit Readiness and Endurance. CAPTURE is a mobile application designed to monitor and assesses the current state of warfighter cognitive readiness by fusing multiple sources of data to provide immediate assessments of readiness in relation to the current or upcoming mission. Resulting cognitive readiness assessments are returned to the warfighter immediately and are viewable by team leaders as an interactive decision aid for personnel decisions. The project team of Aptima and Mr. Troy Zeidman (Imprimis, Inc.) bring to this task: expertise in cognitive readiness research and psychophysiological measurement, knowledge of an operational need for cognitive readiness in both the Army and Navy, and experience developing integrated multi-modal software solutions for assessment and performance measurement.
