Abstract
The Screen-ADAPT system utilizes advances in brain-based sensory technology to develop an advanced training system for baggage screeners that will substantially improve initial and sustainment training over current practices by providing simulated training using real-world data pinpointing specific training deficiencies related to visual inspection skills. Screen-ADAPT incorporates a suite of measurement tools, including cognitive state and behavioral metrics, and system metrics to quantify and diagnose screening skills/deficiencies in real-time, triggering adaptive feedback within a scenario and AAR. Screen-ADAPT provides next-generation neurophysiology-driven, individualized training that ensures appropriate cognitive training states and targets specific training deficits identified, optimizing training sessions with the goal of increased threat detection accuracy and efficiency. Screen-ADAPT will be one of the first real-time, closed-loop training systems that incorporate considerate adaptations as well as AAR feedback that effectively diagnoses training deficiencies, root cause(s) of error patterns, and provides individualized training recommendations to optimize training effectiveness and efficiency. The proposer`s commercialization strategy centers on marketing a completed Screen-ADAPT tool to domestic airports; security and screening checkpoints throughout the US will also be targeted. There are also a wide variety of visual monitoring/inspection tasks that could benefit from a Screen-ADAPT training system: container screening, border patrol personnel, video surveillance security.
