  1. A Hybrid Systems Approach to Intelligent Information Management in Human-Automation Interaction

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: OSD13HS5

    A formal approach to the management of information involved in human-automation interactions is proposed. The mathematical formalism is enabled by employing the notion of hybrid systems. The information management involves ensuring correct information flow and shared cognition between human operators and machines. It is envisioned that the proposed algorithms will formalize the analysis of human-a ...

  2. 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

  3. 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 ...

  5. Exploiting Unobtrusive Psychophysiological Sensors and Work Context to Enhance Monitoring of Human-Automation Interaction

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD141AU1

    We propose a three-pronged approach to advancing the state of the art in human state assessment. First, we will employ a small number of complementary sensors that can be naturally integrated into the work setting without complicated setup requirements. By integrating unobtrusively into the operator"s environment, we hope to minimize the artificiality that can impact operator behavior. Second, in ...

  6. Fusing Uncertain and Heterogeneous Information Making Sense of the Battlefield

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: OSD12LD2

    Decision analysts are faced with an ever-increasing amount of information from a large number of sensors and other data sets. This information can include radar, wide-area motion imagery (WAMI), electronic support measures, and other sensors or information available to the analyst. Analysts are therefore faced with the tasks of scouring an overwhelmingly large amount of data for the information of ...

  7. Human-Centric Training and Assessment System for Cyber Situational Awareness

    SBC: Scalable Network Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD12T08

    The goal of the proposed work is to develop a human-centric training and assessment system for cyber situation awareness. The envisioned system will enable instructors to define training goals, design lesson plans, assign students roles in teams, and observe students performance, record events and interactions for scoring. The instructor/students can place tags (time or event) to roll back or repl ...

  10. Natural Dialogue based Gesture Recognition for Unmanned Aerial System Carrier Deck Operations

    SBC: SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: OSD12HS3

    Communication on the carrier flight deck is primarily gestural because of the extreme noise, which has led to a well established vocabulary of gestures that deck handlers and Navy pilots use to communicate. An unmanned aircraft controlled by this gesture
