  1. Tool for Rapid Assessment of Cognitive Readiness in Teams (TRACR-T)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10CR1

    In today"s collaborative environment, mission success depends on the skills and readiness of each team member. But independently capable individuals are not necessarily ready to function optimally in a team setting. Consequently, assessment of team cognitive readiness requires more than measuring cognitive processing of individuals and then aggregating to the team level. To effectively assess team ...

  2. Neurocognitive Patterns

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10CR2

    Modern military operations are increasingly complex and increasingly electronic, and this often has the effect of increasing operator workload; the systems have incorporated many technological developments, but they have not kept up with our increasing understanding of the cognitive capabilities of the operators themselves. Though there is a recently renewed, increased interest in establishing a ...

  3. Scenario Trainer for Intuition (ASCERTAIN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10CR3

    Warfighter cognitive readiness has grown increasingly important as the emphasis of military operations shifts towards asymmetric and unpredictable irregular warfare and changing military doctrine provides the Warfighter with greater autonomy. In modern operations, Warfighters must make decisions under heavy time constraints and with partial or incomplete information, using intuitive decision makin ...

  4. Training and Improving Warfighter Intuition using Immersive Scenarios

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10CR3

    Across the services, military missions continue to pose complex cognitive and perceptual challenges such as detecting improvised explosive devices (IEDs) or anomalous civilian behaviors. These challenges do not allow time for deliberation and evaluation; in fact, the ability to make quick and accurate decisions in these situations is often cited by Warfighters as key to survival. This ability is c ...

  5. TeamInsight

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10CR7

    Assessing the cognitive readiness of teams in complex work environments is critical for understanding team performance and targeting training resources. Analysis of Team Mental Models (TMMs) provides crucial knowledge for performing cognitive readiness assessment. However, current approaches to constructing TMMs are rigid, require substantial manual coding, and do not scale to the dynamics of real ...

  6. Microgames for the Assessment and Augmentation of Cognitive Readiness Skills (MAACRS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10CR8

    Despite improvements in procedural assessment and training, little advancement has been made in enhancing cognitive readiness, the mental preparation needed to flexibly sustain high levels of performance in unpredictable combat environments. Existing assessment tools, including psychological batteries and computer-based instruments (e.g., the Army Cognitive Readiness Assessment battery) are inacce ...

  7. Decision Support: Cognitive Readiness Assessment and Reporting

    SBC: ONTAR CORP.            Topic: OSD10CR8

    Ontar"s technical objective for this program is to develop a hardware and software solution for both understanding of and augmentation of cognitive readiness at both the individual and command levels. During Phase I we will define the following features and capabilities: Develop a detailed conceptual design for the applicability of a hand-held touch screen hardware/software cognitive readiness sol ...

  8. CAPTURE: Cognitive Assessment Program for Tracking Unit Readiness and Endurance

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10CR8

    In modern warfare, the knowledge and skills of individual warfighters are often stretched beyond capacity in attempts to successfully execute increasingly complex missions. As a result, environmental stressors that accompany high-tempo operations, such as accelerations in time pressure to complete a task, can reduce cognitive readiness and disrupt team cohesion as well as warfighter effectiveness. ...

  9. Embeddable Agents for Assessing Cognitive Readiness

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10CR9

    The modern Warfighter is augmented with complex operational systems to improve his situational awareness, increase his performance range, and act as a force multiplier. However, these new systems often come at the price of increased cognitive workload on the part of the Warfighter, and they may even introduce performance errors that arise from a lack of cognitive readiness. System analysts can imp ...

  10. Magnetic Gears and Couplings

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: OSD10EP8

    APS will expand on available and evolving analytical/numerical tools to address design and performance parameters for Permanent Magnet couplings and gears. APS has developed complex modeling tools for designing and assessing current permanent magnet (PM) motors under ONR sponsorship. These tools have been transitioned to magnetic gear applications, as techniques for addressing flux densities, ma ...
