Abstract
Ensuring operational readiness requires not only assisting individuals and team leaders in monitoring their cognitive readiness, but also providing useful strategies and tools to address areas targeted for improvement. To address this critical need, our overall goal for this SBIR research project is to design and develop the Cognitive Readiness Evaluation and Augmentation Tool for Operational Readiness (CREATOR). Guided by an empirically-derived theoretical model of cognitive readiness, CREATOR will be designed to support three primary functions: (1) Monitor cognitive readiness; (2) Evaluate cognitive readiness; and (3) Augment cognitive readiness. These functions will be supported at both the individual and command (team) levels and will involve using a distinct set of applications designed to monitor, evaluate, and augment cognitive readiness. CREATOR will be hosted on a hand-held device or laptop and can be used regularly by warfighters and their commanders to assess and improve individual and team cognitive readiness, thereby ensuring continuous operational readiness.
