Abstract
The main objective of this SBIR research project is to design and develop the Cognitive Readiness Trainer (CR-Trainer), conceptualized as an integrated training and assessment system that can be used to aid in the rapid formation of cognitively ready, highly effective, and cohesive teams. Our approach for achieving this objective will involve developing an empirically-derived theoretical model of team cognitive readiness that can guide the specification of high priority candidate factors for measurement. Valid measures are then used to identify targeted training objectives. In turn, these training objectives will guide the specification and creation of training and mitigation strategies to address areas targeted for improvement. Finally, a report generator function will enable team leaders to quickly gauge and monitor the cognitive readiness of team members.
