Abstract:

"The goal of this Phase 1 proposal is to examine the technical feasibility of a cognitive performance self-assessment wearable computer system for operational deployment. We will use the standardized and validated software for assessment of cognitiveperformance, ANAM - Automated Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics, which is a set of computer administered and scored tests of cognitive processing efficiency. An ANAM testbed will be developed that can evaluate commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) anddeveloping technologies. We will then evaluate the technical feasibility of the major system components - Speech input and control, visual and auditory display, and alternative input devices. Human factors issues will be addressed through a user-centereddesign process including initial and final design reviews by an expert panel, focus groups with potential system users, and laboratory based usability tests. AnthroTronix, Incorporated, has extensive experience developing advanced human-computer interfacefor a variety of military operational environments and has assembled a world class group of consultants to act as our expert panel. The system identified in Phase 1 will be developed and tested in Phase 2 and expanded in Phase 3 to include other militaryand consumer applications.
