Abstract
Securboration, working closely with Dr. Eugene Santos Jr, from Dartmouth College, creates a world-class, socio-cultural training program development team. With an extensive background and expertise in Air Operations Center (AOC) operations, effects-based planning and assessment, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and modeling and simulation (including modeling cultural influences on adversary behavior), Securboration will design "an instrumented training environment for AOC planning mediated by socio-cultural consideration." Securboration will leverage existing technology and previous work on effect-based planning and assessment in the AOC environment to develop this socio-cultural training environment. Securboration's innovative solution will include: 1) analysis of the socio-cultural considerations most critical to air campaign planning, 2) examination of existing training programs for areas of success and improvement, 3) training module(s) to address the gaps in existing training, 4) scenarios/simulations to address socio-cultural considerations in planning, and 5) evaluation criteria to measure the effectiveness of the training module.
