Title: Shared Situation Awareness (SSA) Measurement
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N00024-11-C-4103
Award Amount: $600,000.00


SEAS incorporates multiple measures into a single, integrated toolset, and includes objective and subjective measures of performance, workload and situation awareness. Using an iterative method of development, this project will result in a fully functional toolset that can be flexibly expanded and adapted to different domains. Our SEAS toolset is based on a modular framework that allows easy experimental set-up, performance measure administration and data interpretation into a single comprehensive tool suite. Phase II work will focus on implementing proprietary metrics, coding the modules, and iteratively testing the toolset both to establish overall usability of the SEAS toolset and to support Navy experimentation effort. Phase III research will involve expanding our SEAS toolset to other domains. The primary utility of SEAS is to provide a comprehensive assessment of both individual and team performance, to include more sensitive and diagnostic measures such as Individual and Team Situation Awareness (SA), Shared Situation Awareness (SSA), and Workload, across a variety of military command and control (C2) system evaluation environments. Our SEAS toolset will provide the capability to deliver objective measures of these parameters to warfighters engaged in Undersea Warfare missions for the purposes of either training evaluation or technology/capability assessment.
