Abstract
Progeny Systems proposes to use a Family of Systems (FoS) to support decision maker situational awareness. The FoS will include hardware that monitors relevant brain activating in real time using non-invasive techniques. The hardware will provide quantitative data on the user’s mental state and help provide the rest of the group members information on each other member’s current mental state. The hardware will be couple with software that will provide the user with feedback and in future interactions will optimize the complexity of the information being viewed by the user so that each user is monitoring the maximum number of variables given their cognitive capabilities and mental state. Lastly, the hardware and software will be coupled with training. Progeny Systems fields the Afloat Integrated Learning Environment (AILE) and will incorporate new measures and training material so that forward deployed, at sea, and shore-based sailors will be able to increase their performance in complex, multi-variable group decision formats.
