  1. Automated Link Analysis for Data-mining of Distributed Information (ALADDIN II)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD02DH13

    Recent terrorist actions, particularly the delivery of anthrax via the US Postal Service, have triggered an urgent need for an early warning system for disease outbreaks due to bioterrorism. In response, we have developed, under a Phase I SBIR effort, a Bayesian Belief Network (BN) approach for Automated Link Analysis for Data-mining of Distributed INformation (ALADDIN) for early outbreak detectio ...

  2. A Methodology and Plan for Assessment of Cognitive Skills and Adaptive Thinking

    SBC: MIRUM CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I effort produced the designs and sample items for six measures of cognitive skills necessary for effective small unit leadership. The primary objectives of the proposed Phase II effort are to develop further these five measures, including thecomputer simulation, to validate the assessment battery, and to develop and validate a business version of the 2 leadership measures. The last ob ...

  3. Problem Oriented Information Networking Tool (POINT)-- A Cognitive Integrated Medical Data Display System

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems represent a revolutionary step in documentation and data utility. However, for the most part, current EMRs are used like electronic file cabinets for simple storage and retrieval of patient data. Clinicians stillneed to browse through enormous quantities of data from various sources to grasp an overall picture of a patient or filter out a few pieces of rele ...

  4. Diode Laser-Based Ketosis Sensor

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The nutritional health of field personnel deployed for extended periods is a long-standing problem critical to military troop performance and readiness. The combination of extraordinary physical stresses and the limited provisions carried by militaryfield personnel result in large caloric imbalances. Personnel may experience: loss of strength and decreased endurance; loss of motivation and decr ...

  5. A Model-Based Index of Cognitive Fightability for Warrior Systems

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current methods to assess system effectiveness often require the development of prototype systems and costly evaluation studies. Several heuristic approaches exist to support technology selection and implementation services, however a scientifically-basedprocess is needed that will consider the functionality that new technology provides, the missions that these systems will be applied to, and the ...

  6. AutoCAS: Automated Communications Analysis System for use in Military Synthetic Environment Exercises

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Effective communications are essential in military operations in urban terrain (MOUT). Leaders must coordinate distributed squads of soldiers in hostile, urban battlegrounds through communication. However, though verbal communications are easy to capture,it traditionally takes days or weeks to analyze and assess this valuable data. Thus, communications analysis has become the province of research ...

  7. Instructional System for Enhancing Seakeeping Cognitive Readiness and Decision-Making Skills

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Planing hull craft used for high-speed operations in littoral waters pose numerous safety challenges. Failure to adequately negotiate wave conditions may result in injury to the crew and damage to the craft. Our primary goal for this project is to designa comprehensive instructional system that will materially improve boat-handling safety by teaching strategies that can significantly mitigate sh ...

  8. Design and Validation of Simulation-based Training for Emergency First Responders

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Simulation-based training is a promising instructional approach for training military and civilian first responders. In addition to training in relevant taskwork skills, there is a need for first responder training in cognitively-based skills such assituation assessment and decision making. We are addressing this need by the development of FIRST, a validated training program for first responders ...

  9. Warrior Readiness for Coalition and Collaborative Teams

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The focus of this proposal is to develop a leadership training system that facilitates the development and maintenance of high performance in multi-cultural teams. Specifically, the goal of this effort is to develop a scenario-based assessment andtraining system that can be implemented through a web network or standalone PC - the Functional Learning Levers Team Leader Toolkit (the FuLL TiLT). Fo ...
