Abstract
Determining if a soldier is cognitively ready to perform his or her job poses a considerable challenge to the research community. This need is especially apparent in the military medical community where soldiers must be ready and able to handle amultitude of conditions and problems at any one moment. This SBIR seeks to employ state of the art techniques in Cognitive Task Analysis, Situation Awareness and Instructional Design to identify and eventually develop comprehensive cognitive readinessmeasures for military medical teams. These measures will have far reaching implications and can ultimately be used to not only evaluate cognitive readiness, but can also provide comprehensive diagnostic information and structured feedback to the soldiersand their superiors. This structured feedback can be used in training applications or can be used to determine when personnel rotation is called for.
