Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Terence Andre, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,988.00
Abstract:
In this proposal, TiER1 Performance Solutions and Alion Science and Technology offer to identify requirements and specifications, and implement a proof-of-concept prototype tool to support human factors evaluations. This prototype, called the Human Factors Evaluation Automated Tool (HFE-AT), will… More

Accelerated Learning for Cyber Insider Threat Reduction (XL-CITR)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Terence Andre, Managing Director – (859) 663-2114
Award Amount: $749,975.00
Abstract:
Future U.S. Information Systems will be subject to increased attacks. These attacks will come from both internal and external threats. As reflected by the budgets for combating these threats, external cyber threats are assumed to be more likely. By comparison, internal threats to cyber networks… More

SBIR Phase I:Learning Acceleration in Cyber Security Education and Training through Content Filtering, Intelligent Tutoring, and Scenario-based Gaming

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Terence S. Andre, DPhil
Award Amount: $149,853.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to create a knowledge and training system that will reliably enable trainees and students to learn more material at a faster rate in any sector of society while, in the process: 1) advancing the scientific knowledge of the… More

Human Factors Analysis Support Tool (H-FAST)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Terence Andre, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $599,962.00
Abstract:
Designing complex systems, such as those used by NASA, requires a coordinated effort among a variety of engineering teams. In order to be successful, the human-computer interactions in these systems need to follow a principle-based design process. In Phase II, TiER1 and Alion propose to continue… More

Competency-based Adaptive Training System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD

Award Amount: $149,973.00
Abstract:
TiER1 Performance Solutions proposes to develop CATS (Competency-based Adaptive Training System), a system to address common warfighter training needs in the Air and Space Operations Center. A major goal of this effort is to prepare warfighters for mission readiness by integrating a Learning… More

Human Performance Modeling Mark-up Language (HMP-ML)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Research Institution: Carnegie Mellon University
Principal Investigator: Stu Rodgers, Managing Director – (937) 903-0558
Award Amount: $99,937.00
RI Contact: Christian Lebiere
Abstract:
The modeling and simulation of human performance is often difficult because there is no uniform framework for expressing the content and structure of a human performance model and all but impossible to compare and contrast across different models despite the abundance of quantitative modeling tools.… More

Predictive Proficiency and Readiness Evaluation (PrePARE)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Ryan Meyer, Senior Consultant – (859) 663-2114
Award Amount: $149,744.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: In order to make flight combat training more efficient and effective, many strides have been made in the areas of role-based competency definition through the use of Mission-Essential Competencies (MECs), live-virtual-constructive (LVC) simulation for realistic practice and assessment in… More

Synthetic Language Interface Toolkit for Chat (SynChat)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Stuart M. Rodgers, Managing Director – (859) 663-2114
Award Amount: $149,973.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: The high operations tempo, frequent deployments and other fact-of-life events limit the availability for team training. To mitigate this training availability problem, training simulations need to incorporate constructive entities as teammates in a way that enhances training for the human… More
