AbstractTraining teams of military operators is critical to effective performance in combat situations increasingly characterized by network-centric, information-rich environments and the corresponding demands on rapid, collaborative decision making. Performanceassessment of task skills is an inadequate measure of team skill mastery. Team performance assessment is needed, both to provide relevant team-skill diagnosis and intervention, and to reveal strengths and weaknesses of team training approaches.Enhancing Performance through Improved Coordination (EPIC) is an approach to improving team performance that focuses on the assessment of team skills. 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
