Abstract
Effective team training is at the heart of enhanced mission effectiveness for military operations now and into the foreseeable future. However, despite numerous advances in intelligent tutoring system (ITS) technologies for individual skills, these systems have yet to fully address the "coach-less" instruction of teamwork skills. Accordingly, in this project we propose to build a prototype Intelligent Teamwork Tutoring System (ITTS) that is targeted at supporting Army team training. More specifically, our primary objectives for Phase I include: 1) The identification of critical teamwork skills relevant to training Army teams; 2) The creation of a high-level framework for an ITTS; 3) The specification of a high level design for a simulation-based testbed; and 4) The development of a proof of concept demonstration. In Phase II, we will build on this work by developing a prototype version of this system for an Army team, by testing and evaluating its effectiveness, and by engineering the necessary extensions for application to larger scale teams. In Phase III, we will transition and market the eventual product, the Intelligent Tutoring System for Adaptive Team Training.
