Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-030
Budget: 04/05/06 - 02/05/07

The Air Force Research Laboratory has identified the need for an interactive knowledge assessment tools that provide realistic vignette examples to support performance assessment in Distributed Mission Operations (DMO). Assessments of improvements and gaps in Mission Essential Competencies (MEC) Knowledge and Skills are used to evaluate DMO tra...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-036
Budget: 03/21/06 - 03/21/08

In this proposal we describe the steps necessary to implement a human performance modeling tool that supports the representation of both procedural and cognitive aspects within a unified modeling environment. The proposed effort builds on our Phase I work in which we explored the integration of task network and cognitive modeling tools at both ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-174
Budget: 11/14/05 - 05/13/06

This proposal describes the design of a web-based system for gathering, collecting, and disseminating lessons learned. The proposed system will be built with a user-centered design approach which includes interviewing users to identify problems with the current system used by Army Medical Command and defining requirements for the new system. I...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-184
Budget: 11/10/05 - 05/09/06

Human perception is a subtle and complex process and increasingly is viewed as a major component of expert performance. In sharp contrast, in the representation of human behavior within a computer generated force, perception is often reduced merely to an assignment statement. Thus an enemy vehicle might be "perceived" in a constructive simulat...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-T014
Budget: 08/19/05 - 08/19/07

Successful training in complex environments is normally accomplished through the interaction of a trainee and a skilled expert, but due to resource constraints, experts use in training can be problematic. Using an optimal model of task performance subject to human constraints may be a more efficient way to develop models of skilled human perfo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-064
Budget: 05/12/05 - 11/11/05

The most common cause of submarine combat system failures is human error. A prevalent approach is to reduce errors by (a) consulting with domain experts to determine what caused each error, and (b) providing a system upgrade to fix the individual problems that caused each error. The problem with this approach is that the sum of the individual ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-T014
Budget: 10/06/04 - 07/06/05

Successful training in complex environments is normally accomplished through the interaction of a trainee and a skilled expert, but due resource constraints, experts' use in training can be problematic. Developing expert models for training is one solution, but constructing expert models is costly and time-consuming, and they tend to be difficu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM03-006
Budget: 09/22/04 - 03/31/09

The combat load for today's individual Special Operations Forces warfighter is 100 pounds or more, which is unacceptably high. Lighter loads will reduce SOF operator fatigue, and increase his ability to move greater distances in a shorter time than is possible today. As a solution to this problem, we propose to manufacture a self-mobile traile...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-052
Budget: 07/16/04 - 07/16/06

Micro Analysis & Design, Inc. (MA&D) proposes to conduct innovative research and development aimed at demonstrating methods for diagnosing student competencies and training needs, and adapting the sequence and content of scenarios to target identified weaknesses. The proposed Phase II effort will develop and demonstrate prototype software to d...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-173
Budget: 06/14/04 - 06/14/06

Micro Analysis & Design, Inc (MA&D) proposes to apply our experience and technology to develop integrated methods and tools for creating, assessing and analyzing measures of team performance and effectiveness during training events. The proposed approach will develop a prototype for integrated, human-centered software tools that will support th...
