Abstract
"We propose to develop a comprehensive team SA measurement system to provide direct insight into soldier dynamic knowledge and decision skills at various levels of small squad command and in major types of military operations in urban terrain (MOUT). Thesystem will integrate a real-time measure of team SA for use during soldier immersion in VR simulators and a post-immersion measure for integration in after action reviews. We will also describe an approach for integrating the results of these measures toprovide a comprehensive analysis of SA based on objective data and subjective perceptions of participants. Phase II work will be a direct extension of Phase I and will involve development of a prototype of the measurement system and sample scenarios tovalidate and assess the usability of the measurement system. The resulting measure will help optimize Army VE training capabilities in terms of identifying suitable protocols/scenarios for small team mission skill development, assessing and providingfeedback on individual dismounted soldier/land warrior readiness for battlefield situations. We expect the measurement system to be highly sensitive to VE training scenario manipulations and predictive of soldier decision making and MOUT missionperformance. The most immediate commercialization potentials for the new comprehensive measure of SA in (virtual) training applications includes: public safety officer emergency operations training, st
