AbstractThe primary objective of this proposal is to develop a real-time decision support toolkit to provide mission planners a transparent method for using and interpreting empirical research findings. Such a tool would assist planners in making better educated decisions regarding how various environmental and mission factors impact cognitive readiness. The overall goal is to provide a method to better predict, and thus optimize individual performance, improving overall combat effectiveness and individual survivability. Pacific Science & Engineering (PSE) has significant experience in integrating scientific literature into a mission planning tool for use by the military. Currently, PSE is developing (ONR project) a system for predicting physical performance under various environmental conditions based upon mission requirements. Leveraging this work would allow rapid inclusion of a cognitive readiness component in to this system. A tool with both cognitive readiness and physical performance prediction based upon mission requirements and environmental factors could then be developed.
