Our teamss expertise will support ASETs central concept of creating a multi-dimensional assessment of behavior in a JOAC that can be accomplished in near real-time during exercises and real-world operations as well as training. The vision is for an instrumented environment supporting real-time access to a coherent data picture that represents the operational efficiency of the JAOC and to correlate the behavioral data to after-action assessments. BENEFIT: TDKC has vigorously pursued commercialization as the ultimate goal of all of its SBIR projects, recognizing the need to leverage the initial Government and corporate investments with commercial and other Government funds to realize the full benefit of the project. These activities have included intensive study and development of commercialization strategies that work for projects such as those encompassed by ASET. Our commercialization plan provides a realistic and executable approach to commercialization that provides more than lip-service to the notion that SBIR-funded technologies should find commercial applicability; indeed our non-SBIR revenue exceeded SBIR revenue in 2007 a remarkable achievement in 4 years of business.
