Abstract
We propose to build a comprehensive system architecture which will provide a mechanism for researchers/educators/trainers, to extend their methods and designs from the confines of the research lab environment to the wide-scale and global applied use in the field or at home. We will expand our Phase I work (design, implementation, and evaluation of a mobile computing prototype brain fitness training program that enhances cognitive function and learning) to develop a complete system architecture in which tasks, covering multiple cognitive domains, can be downloaded and used for training/assessment on a host of mobile devices (iPod/iPad/Android) on a consistent platform to allow for sharing of tasks and data. The ability to collect data/monitor remotely from subjects/sailors worldwide will allow for a limitless subject pool , without the restricting factor of local demographic composition, and fast/efficient recruitment/data collection processes. We will use our expertise to develop this application with the ability to scale, to gain a positive reaction in field, and to run reliably and accurately. This expansion will allow the system to be used in a broad range of military and civilian security applications, including for jobs that impose high cognitive demand and workload as indicated in this solicitation.
