We propose to enhance team training and improve crew readiness by developing automated capabilities forteam assessment in the context of scenario-based training. We will design experiments aimed at mapping crew actions to coordination behaviors and team skills, in order to articulate a set of team performance metrics that measures the crew's abilities tocoordinate with each other and with their automation systems. We will then develop technologies that will enable two distinct capabilities: (1) an
