Abstract
The objective for this Phase II effort is to leverage our Phase I findings to develop a training solution for network operations (NetOps) Soldiers. Our proposed solution, the Situation Awareness Virtual instruction Architecture for NetOps Training (SAVANT), seeks to address gaps in existing training by focusing on the development of situation awareness (SA), cognitive skills, and effective communication for network operations. This effort will leverage our background and experience as related to key cognitive constructs and issues in NetOps to support Army missions, as well as focused research on current challenges for Network operators. In addition, we will implement established and proven system design approaches toward the development of SAVANT, referencing and implementing human-centered design principles. Phase II will also include demonstration and an initial validation of the training solution. This SBIR leverages our advanced training approaches and products to provide a low-risk, high payoff for the Army. The product of this SBIR will be a robust training solution that supplements existing training systems, thereby advancing the training experience for signal officers to address key challenges.
