Abstract
The envisioned product of this SBIR is a Crew Resource Management (CRM) training program to enhance the time sensitive targeting (TST) skills of the Dynamic Targeting Cell (DTC) within the Combined Air and Space Operations Center (CAOC). We call this product IMPACT: Intervention Methods and Performance Assessment for Crew Training. The DTC is characterized by unpredictable injections of high-priority tasks with severe time constraints. DTC personnel must coordinate their responses to these tasks in a dynamic, teams-of-teams environment to ensure overall mission success. IMPACT training will improve this coordination. During Phase I, Aptima will analyze existing CRM approaches and methods from analogous domains, and will map relevant CRM concepts to critical DTC knowledge and skills. Next, Aptima will develop a comprehensive CRM training structure and a proof-of-concept training module, along with plans for evaluating its effectiveness. During Phase II, Aptima will fully develop the comprehensive IMPACT training program. The end result will be a CRM training curriculum that is specifically designed to help DTC personnel successfully cope with the time-sensitive threats of today.as well as those of tomorrow.
