ABSTRACT: The goal of the After-action Review and Debrief Intelligent Support (AARDIS) project is to successfully develop and deploy advanced electronic warfare (EW) training methods and tools to: (i) reduce the cognitive workload of instructors, (ii) improved training effectiveness, (iii) accelerated improvements in student performance, and (iv) reduced costs. As such, the AARDIS technology is intended to augment and cost-effectively supplement existing high-fidelity AF EW training technology that is both easily configurable and readily adaptable to different platform training needs. BENEFIT: The primary benefits of the AARDIS research include: (i) significant improvement in the quality and effectiveness of training for EW crew member situation awareness, communications, and decision-making; (ii) significant decrease in the time and cost to provide EW training; and (iii) reduced life-cycle cost to support distributed mission operations (DMO) training support.
