  1. Real-time Cognitive Readiness Assessment Tool

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: OSD10C10

    Traditional well-defined battle lines and clear means of identification are gone. Today"s operating environment is far more complex, with a dispersed enemy, mixed with civilians and non-combatants, and targets located in areas where there are concerns over collateral damage. Agility allows the total force to adapt rapidly to changing requirements through the use of competent individuals and organi ...

  2. ADS FORCE: Assessment and Development Strategies FOr team Rapid Cognitive Effectiveness

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10CR4

    In modern warfare, the knowledge and skills of several individuals must interact with one another for successful mission execution. Therefore, military combat operations emphasize the use of teams, who are often expected to rapidly deploy together. Such teams must quickly become highly functioning, as characterized by high levels of team cognitive readiness and process. To address the need for new ...

  3. CognitiveReadinessTrainer (CR Trainer) forPromotingTeamEffectiveness

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD10CR4

    The main objective of this SBIR research project is to design and develop the Cognitive Readiness Trainer (CR-Trainer), conceptualized as an integrated training and assessment system that can be used to aid in the rapid formation of cognitively ready, highly effective, and cohesive teams. Our approach for achieving this objective will involve developing an empirically-derived theoretical model of ...

  4. System for Workload Evaluation in Distributed Teams (SWEDT)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10CR6

    Extensive research on individual workload exists, and we know much about how to measure and assess individual workload. However, no satisfactory model of workload or approach to assessing workload exists for teams. Furthermore, no approach to assessing team workload represents the dynamic, multidimensional characteristics of the team environment; especially when individual members are distributed. ...

  5. Subjective Multidimensional Workload Index for Distributed Teams: Development Program for the Team Subjective Assessment of Workload (T-SAW)

    SBC: SA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD10CR6

    Currently, there is a severe lack of subjective workload measures developed specifically to address the characteristics of distributed ad-hoc teams. The significance of the problem is considerable, given the fact that many organizations (e.g., industry, military, and academia) continue to rely more and more on distributed teams and collaborative technology to accomplish tasks and goals. In respons ...

  6. Redeployable Solar Combined Heat and Power (RSCHP) System

    SBC: 7Solar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD10EP5

    7Solar is proposing to develop a novel PV/Thermal combination system that produces electricity and hot water in the same form-factor and cost as a standard PV module. The ratio between the amount of hot water and electricity can be varied based on demand. We use a proprietary silicon cell (patent pending with Department of Energy). Optional hot water storage tanks and electrical storage (super cap ...

  7. CASHNET: Conceptual and Social Human Networks Evolving in Time

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10L01

    The focus of the military has shifted to much more complex missions, stressing counter-insurgency (COIN), and Stability, Security, Transition, and Reconstruction (SSTR) operations, and Humanitarian Aid/Disaster Relief (HADR). The accompanying intelligence apparatus must therefore be able to answer fundamental questions about the people we are trying to protect and persuade which requires knowledg ...

  8. Network Extraction and Resolution System (NEaRS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10L02

    The increasingly asymmetric nature of U.S. military operations has resulted in a need for Warfighters to understand the"human terrain"in which they operate. To support tactical decision-making, a social network should be constructed from the widest array of available intelligence sources, such as TIGR, BAT/HIIDES, and OSINT. Producing the social network from this variety of sources presents two ma ...

  9. Scalable Paradigm for Effective Autonomous Routing in SUAS-centric Networks (SPEAR)


    Mayflower Communications Company, Inc. (Mayflower) proposes a novel technology, Scalable Paradigm for Effective Autonomous Routing (SPEAR), to meet the OSD"s objective, namely, to provide technology to enable autonomous routing for information exchange in the small unmanned aerial systems (SUAS) environment, including SUAS, ground nodes, as well as reachback capabilities. SPEAR is a cross-layer op ...

  10. ESPRIT: Schemas for Intent Recognition

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF103007

    The potential for force multiplication in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs) rises with the degree to which they can be"neglected"by human controllers and operators. There is currently a great deal of human cognitive attention required to manage UAS assets safely and effectively, particularly in cluttered environments such as the terminal area of operations (TAO). To improve UAS autonomy, SoarTech ...
