When considering the ability of warfighters to adapt to mission needs as a mission evolves, cognitive readiness assessment is very important for military planners. To address the critical need of real-time cognitive readiness assessment for Special Forces"quick-strike"missions, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) is developing an integrated, extensible and real-time cognitive readiness assessment tool, called ICR. ICR consists of three software components in three layers. The information source layer includes software components for data integration and model incorporation to integrate cognitive readiness related data and models from multiple sources. The model and process layer includes the integrated data/model fusion component that combines a unified data mining and fusion abstraction model with comprehensive model composition. The presentation layer includes software components for research and data visualization and an interactive user interface. We anticipate that the product resulting from our Phase II work will be an integrated software tool based on advanced data warehousing, data mining, and data visualization technology for assessing Special Forces troops"cognitive readiness, as part of mission readiness. ICR will be suitable for both researchers in the laboratory and decision makers in the field.
