Cognitive readiness assessment for"quick-strike"missions in hostile areas plays a crucial role for troop deployment in remote areas. All information related to soldiers"skills, knowledge, abilities, motivations, personal dispositions, and the environment where to conduct the mission will be useful to prepare them mentally. To address this need, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI), along with our collaborators Mr. Alec Barker and General Dynamics, propose to develop an Integrated, Extensible and Real-time Cognitive Readiness Assessment Tool for Mission Planning (IECRATMP). Our proposed system consists of four software components in three layers. The bottom layer is called information source layer, consisting of the software component to integrate cognitive readiness data/model sources. This component has two subcomponents: data extraction and model incorporation. The middle layer is called model and process layer, consisting of the software components of integrated data and model fusion and GIS integration. The component of integrated data/model fusion adopts a unified data mining and fusion abstraction model with model composition. The component of GIS integration incorporates location and map information into the life cycle cognitive readiness assessment process for mission planning. The top layer is called web presentation layer, consisting of the software component of GIS and AJAX powered GUI.
