Award List:

Physiological-based Tools for Virtual Environment Fidelity Design Guidance

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: UNIV. OF IOWA
Principal Investigator: James P. Hauser, Senior Systems Engineer
Award Amount: $69,997.00
RI Contact: Thomas Schnell
Abstract:
We propose to use physiological sensors to measure the quality of a trainee's interaction with a virtual environment (VE) as a function of VE fidelity to enable design improvements in VEs and to enhance training effectiveness through feedback of physiological-based performance information.… More

Tailoring Training for Disparately Skilled Participants in Large Scale Training Exercises

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of Iowa
Principal Investigator: Thomas Schnell, Director
Award Amount: $69,941.00
RI Contact: Thomas Schnell
Abstract:
Large scale training exercises involve many trainees at various stages of their training maturity and at various levels of skill. Problems arise in large scale exercises when less mature or lower skilled trainees are exposed to training scenarios that are too advanced or too complex for their level… More

Physiological-based Tools for Virtual Environment Fidelity Design Guidance

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of Iowa
Principal Investigator: Thomas Schnell, Director
Award Amount: $496,429.00
RI Contact: Thomas Schnell
Abstract:
This proposal describes the proposed implementation of the concept of the Quality of Training Effectiveness Assessment (QTEA) system. This concept was developed in Phase I (N074-028-0065). Currently, VE design is guided by subjective design models that involve multiple design iterations and focus on… More

Tailoring Training for Disparately Skilled Participants in Large Scale Training Exercises

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of Iowa
Principal Investigator: Thomas Schnell, Principal Investigator – (319) 631-4445
Award Amount: $749,966.00
RI Contact: Thomas Schnell
Abstract:
The SKATE concept was designed to quantify skill levels of trainees, teams, or units, generate skill-appropriate training scenarios, and provide a continuous skill-level assessment of disparately skilled trainees, teams, and units in a joint training exercise while maintaining the overall integrity… More

Automated Human and System Performance Assessment in Operational Environments

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: University of Iowa
Principal Investigator: Thomas Schnell, Director, OPL – (319) 631-4445
Award Amount: $79,997.00
RI Contact: Thomas Schnell
Abstract:
The development of complex aviation weapons systems involves flight testing at various stages of the design cycle. Test pilots are highly trained individuals with flight and assessment skills necessary to evaluate the performance of test articles. Test pilots might subconsciously use their high… More
