Topic: OSD14.1-AU3
Budget: 08/15/14 - 02/17/15
PI: Danielle Dumond

As mixed human/agent/robot teams become more prevalent throughout civilian and defense applications, proper testing and evaluation of team performance becomes increasingly essential. Several challenges remain to understanding how to evaluate such teams. To address these problems, Aptima and our partners propose to design and develop HASTE (Human...


Training Requirements: An Empirical and Computational Analysis for MAGIC CARPET (TRECA-MC)

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-012
Budget: 08/13/14 - 08/15/16
PI: Dr. E. Webb Stacy

This proposal describes a series of inter-related subprojects aimed at developing an empirical understanding of the MAGIC CARPET system, including its training requirements, effectiveness, and safety. An important overall objective is to estimate cost, throughput, and readiness considerations compared to conventional landing technology. To accom...


AWAKE: Adaptive Workspace for Analyst Knowledge & Engagement

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD12-AU5
Budget: 07/17/14 - 07/16/16
PI: Stacy Pfautz

There is an increasing need for fast and accurate analysis of large volumes of disparate data containing critical information. Existing tools for information search, retrieval, and exploitation are inadequate because the tools have limited ability to (1) help the analyst understand the semantics within the information, (2) reveal the relationshi...


Sense-making via Collaborative Agents and Activity Networks (SCAAN)

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD12-AU6
Budget: 07/01/14 - 06/30/16
PI: Dr. Georgiy Levchuk

The volume of data collected by Air Force ISR has exceeded the capacities of traditional analysis methods. New enhancements to the Air Force s PCPAD intelligence cycle are, thus, critical to providing the analyst with the ability to strategically process, exploit and analyze the most critical information. Aptima s SCAAN system seeks to enhance P...


SONIC – Sensor Operations via Naturalistic Interactive Control

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD12-HS2
Budget: 06/04/14 - 03/15/16
PI: Stacy Pfautz

As analysts and operators move from data to insights, tools are needed for supervisory control, command and control, and intelligence analysis. Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) requires the ability to navigate and interpret mounds of data to produce actionable decisions. Through the Urban Telepresence program, the Air Force R...


CERTAIN: Certainty Enrichment via Relational and Temporal Analytical Indexing of Networks

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB123-002
Budget: 03/07/14 - 03/06/16
PI: Dr. Georgiy Levchuk

Efficient and accurate indexing is fundamental to the Big Data enterprise, but traditional indexing techniques are often foiled by noise and missing information. Aptima proposes Phase II of CERTAIN (Certainty Enrichment via Relational and Temporal Analyti


IDADSS: Intelligent and Directed Antibiotic Decision Support System

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-046
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14
PI: Scott Papada

Optimal delivery of antibiotics and management of sepsis remains a significant challenge in the critical care setting. Availability of an antibiotic decision support system (DSS) would represent an invaluable asset for healthcare providers, facilitate timely and efficient antibiotic therapies, and lead to improvements in patient safety and outco...


ASYMPTOTE: A SYMPle Tool for Optimal Technical Education

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N142-124
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14
PI: Dr. Jared Freeman

Navy technology is exquisitely complex, and thus difficult to diagnose and repair. Acquiring and, more importantly, retaining the technical skills for corrective maintenance of these complex systems is a significant challenge for the Navy. What is needed is an efficient technology for assessing, training, and retraining diagnosis and repair skil...


ACLAMATE: Automated Cognitive Load Assessment for Medical StAff Training and Evaluation

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Health Program
Topic: DHP13-002
Budget: 12/20/13 - 07/19/14
PI: Dr. Jeffrey M. Beaubien

Although great strides have been made in the development of simulators for training technical and teamwork skills, much less progress has been made with regard to skill assessment. Typically, performance is measured using a rating scale with anchors ranging from low to high. Such methods are too coarse to provide an accurate assessment of in...


GUARD: General Utility for Assessing Risk of Disclosure

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Massachusetts

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF13-AT14
Budget: 10/22/13 - 07/21/14
PI: Brian Riordan

ABSTRACT: Information is a national asset that must be protected. To make effective use of this asset, information sharing is critical between government agencies, with foreign government partners, and with the private sector. At the same time, in practice, balancing information sharing and information protection can be difficult. Tools are ...
