Title: Development of a System for Cognitive Readiness Evaluation through Evolutionary Patterns (CREEP)
Agency: DOD
Contract: N00014-11-M-0101
Award Amount: $99,649.00
 

Abstract:

Measures of cognitive readiness are critical to ensuring deployment of warfighters who perform optimally in today"s dynamic mission settings that require at times rapid shifts between peace making, peace keeping, and combat operations. The proposed System for Cognitive Readiness Evaluation through Evolutionary Patterns will incorporate an embeddable, modular and evolutionary cognitive readiness diagnostic engine that can be employed in existing military systems to evaluate individualized cognitive readiness and performance. CREEP will incorporate a modular metric suite, such that the diagnostic engine can run using system-collected metrics alone giving limited cognitive readiness evaluation, or accept data from non invasive, minimally intrusive neural, physiological, and behavioral metrics that provide more granular information regarding cognitive readiness. The proposed CREEP system will then diagnose times of non-optimal cognitive readiness states that can be remediated prior to these issues manifesting themselves in behavioral errors. The resultant hardware/software suite will be embeddable into existing systems, such that the CREEP architecture can provide consistent, reliable performance measurement and cognitive readiness assessment across domains and systems.
