As the complexity of threats and emerging warfare capabilities increase, so do the number of Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) and the corresponding training regimes. Instructors are increasingly in need of automated tools to enable training that scales with complexity. Aptima, Inc., and our partners, Aviation Systems Engineering Company, Inc. (ASEC) and the University of Southern California’s Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT), will address this need by extending the Phase I prototype of TOPMAST: Training Operational Performance via Measure Automation and Scenario-generation Technology. TOPMAST will reuse tactical training data to generate scenario libraries at scale, improve integrated performance assessments, and adaptively recommend training material for individuals, crews, squadrons, and wings given current training requirements.TOPMAST benefits Navy training at many levels: individuals, crews, squadrons, wings, and above. For the individual and the crew, TOPMAST assesses training results, recommends new training, and inserts targeted training events into scenarios in real-time. For the squadron, TOPMAST analyzes trends in both operations and training, and automates authoring procedures to populate a scenario library. At all levels, TOPMAST maintains and annotates a training scenario library with understandable insight on which Training Objectives are addressed by each scenario, and how the library covers each.
