Abstract
In Phase I we have developed an integrated software and hardware solution to identify personnel who have a natural aptitude for a cognitive skill. The goal of Phase II is to develop a screening tool by expanding previous multi-dimensional approach developed in Phase I and predict vigilance skill performance and aptitude for enlisted classification and officer career path aptitude assessments. The task-specific physiological test and the proof-of-concept screening tool will be initially evaluated at the Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS) directly after the candidate is administered the Armed Forces Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test to assess the vigilance of about potential recruits and support the classification process of sailors.
