  1. ADS FORCE PHASE II: Assessment and Development Strategies FOr team Rapid Cognitive Effectiveness

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10CR4

    Current military combat operations emphasize the use of teams, who are often expected to rapidly deploy together. This rapid deployment cycle is especially true for military transition teams. Such teams must quickly become highly functioning, as characterized by high levels of team cognitive readiness. To address the need for newly formed teams to rapidly become cognitively ready and effective, th ...

  2. SONICSensor Operations via Naturalistic Interactive Control

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD12HS2

    As analysts and operators move from data to insights, tools are needed for supervisory control, command and control, and intelligence analysis. Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) requires the ability to navigate and interpret mounds of data to produce actionable decisions. Through the Urban Telepresence program, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is redefining a concept of ...

  3. CREATE II: Contextually Relevant Exploitation&Analysis Training Environment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD11CR2

    Imagery analysts face a number of challenges that complicate their ability to gain contextual awareness, particularly when exploiting multiple forms of sensor data. Faced with adaptable adversaries, analysts require advanced training tools that span a variety of mission contexts. Because no analyst can be an expert in every sensor platform, what is needed is a training tool that senses and adapts ...

  4. Advanced Robot Training Interface

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD13HS1

    It is not likely that an autonomous system can be programmed with all the information it requires to perform every mission or every variation of every contingency within the near future. One way to address this issue is to provide user-friendly means to teach or program a robot to add to its autonomous capability. This proposal focuses on the physical aspects of the robot performance, manipulat ...

  5. Autonomy Safety Testing Environment

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD141AU4

    Recent advancements in sensor simulation tools [2] have improved our ability to model radar, lidar, camera, and GPS with software/hardware in the loop. Of course, our ability to model the physics of heavy trucks [3] is quite mature as well. To address the challenge of developing the STE, we will provide our autonomy algorithms as Government Furnished Equipment (GFE). The focus of this topic ...

  6. A System Using Knowledge of Narratives for Optimizing Workspaces to Enhance Reasoning (KNOWER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD12LD4

    The wealth of data provided by modern information fusion (IF) tools exceeds the ability of intelligence analysts to effectively process, exploit, and disseminate actionable intelligence. This issue arises because these IF tools define information value a

  7. Solid Waste Destruction System (SWDS) for Small Contingency Base Camps

    SBC: MSW Power Corporation            Topic: OSD12EP2

    Solid waste disposal and/or destruction are problems that cannot be ignored in patrol base camps or combat outposts and are frequently cited as one of the pressing concerns for established camps. MSW Power has developed a Solid Waste Destruction System (SWDS) consisting of a compactor that mechanically and thermally removes moisture from patrol base camp solid waste, a pyrolysis unit in which the ...

  9. AWAKE: Adaptive Workspace for Analyst Knowledge & Engagement

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD12AU5

    There is an increasing need for fast and accurate analysis of large volumes of disparate data containing critical information. Existing tools for information search, retrieval, and exploitation are inadequate because the tools have limited ability to (1) help the analyst understand the semantics within the information, (2) reveal the relationships between the information and the analytic task, or ...

  10. Sense-making via Collaborative Agents and Activity Networks (SCAAN)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD12AU6

    The volume of data collected by Air Force ISR has exceeded the capacities of traditional analysis methods. New enhancements to the Air Forces PCPAD intelligence cycle are, thus, critical to providing the analyst with the ability to strategically process, exploit and analyze the most critical information. Aptimas SCAAN system seeks to enhance PCPAD by distributing data exploitation and analysis tas ...
