Abstract
In order to win the war for recruitment and retention, the CNO has stated that sailors of today and tomorrow must be well trained and equipped. Given the diverse needs of training communities, acquisition managers, and curriculum developers it is ultimately important to provide accountability and ownership in any mechanism or process that intends to enhance performance. This SBIR project will develop an approach for an architecture that is extensible and scalable, and aligns the AN/SQQ-89(V) USW combat system as well as combat systems in the future with Task Force EXCEL objectives. Implementation of a Supportability Performance Assessment System within a tactical system architecture will provide a quantum increase in collaborative training and training evaluation capabilities that have here to for been unobtainable. We propose to illicit stakeholder involvement in development of the SPAS through solicitation of parametric data relationship mappings that will provide quantifiable metric data deemed critical in evaluation of skills application and acquirement of knowledge. Additionally, because some competencies are not directly observable/measurable (behaviors and attitudes for example), the proposed SPAS design and architecture would be sufficiently robust to enable monitoring of user and team action derivatives thereby providing repeatable standards to assess otherwise subjective MOEs.
