Abstract
Our Fused-Realities-Assessments-Modules(FRAM) enables innovative new levels and types of automated quantification strategies for combining human and system performance in real-time for fused performance monitoring and after-action-review purposes. FRAM accomplishes this by fusing output of normative models of behaviors (cognitive/procedural/team), human states (physiological/affective), system states (simulation models and/or operational vehicle states), and contextual situation states (live/virtual/constructive/serious-game scripts/scenarios). Innovatively all of the monitored states"data streams can be visualized and analyzed separately, and/or grouped and customized for specific assessments. Our scientific combined model is technologically implemented on Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) laptops/tablets with inexpensive COTS sensors, along with innovative translation and interface software modules between the operator controller interface and the virtual simulation environment (or operational system). FRAM"s modular architecture enables technological customizations as an add-on self-contained deployable suite to existing simulations, serious-games, and operational systems. FRAM transition priorities include automated combined human and UxV system interfaces performance assessments capacities added onto existing popular open-source advanced simulations enables objective assessments for"best-of-breed"interface selections, along with future evolutions of the UxV operator controller interfaces. After ensuring the validity of our combined model assessment science in militarily relevant scenarios, we envision supporting parallel evolutions of standards and associated human training for all UxV interfaces.
