Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Ncsa - Uiuc

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-T001
Budget: 09/18/06 - 09/17/08

Research and development to support Soldier and leader training must explore not only advanced learning environments and instructional strategies but also advanced training-development processes. In the first phase of this STTR project, GIST and HumRRO re

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Human Resources Research Organization

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-T001
Budget: 08/11/05 - 02/14/06

Embedded training (ET) is the envisioned method for flexibly training an adaptive future force. Successful ET is more than the platform on which it is hosted or the realism of training exercises. Training must also be structured. IMI could be an efficient and effective means for delivering structured ET. This requires that an IMI exercise-genera...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Environmental Research Institute of Michigan

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF94T001
Budget: 09/27/94 - 05/04/95

Radar simulation technology is required for cost-effective development of radar targeting, adaptive provessing techniques, developing affordable sensor systems, and for weapon and sensor system integration. In is current large radar simulations (e.g., AECM,HIMSART,AGRAM), the government has received contractor-customized stand-alone software. B...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: DARPA92-092
Budget: 10/16/93 - 04/15/94

Global Information Systems Technology, Inc. prop oses to continue the development and implementation of an Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) begun in Phase I. The proposed ITS is based on a generic, modularly-structured system using object-oriented and knowledge-based techniques in an adaptable architecture. The traini...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF92-029
Budget: 08/26/93 - 08/26/95

Global proposes to create an authoring system that will significantly reduce courseware development time and increase the potential for more effective training. The system will include instructional strategy templates that will be reusable by subject matter experts who are not instructional designers and instructional designers who are not prog...

Phase 1 SBIR

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 89-2
Budget: 01/01/89 - 12/31/89

FLIGHT SIMULATION IS A PRIMARY AND CRITICAL FORM OF TRAINING. HOWEVER, CURRENT SIMULATORS HAVE NOT YET BEEN INTEGRATED WITH COMPUTER-BASED TRAINING (CBT) TECHNOLOGY. THIS MEANS THAT AUTHORING TOOLS AND OTHER TYPICAL CBT CAPABILITIES SUCH AS PERFORMANCE MONITORING, GIVING ADVISE TO STUDENTS AND ANSWERING QUESTIONS, AND RECORD KEEPING FUNCTIONS AR...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic: 88-1
Budget: 01/01/88 - 12/31/88

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A86-112
Budget: 01/01/88 - 12/31/88

DURING PHASE I OF THIS RESEARCH, GIST BUILT AND DEMONSTRATED AN INTELLIGENT TUTORING SYSTEM PROTOTYPE THAT IMPLEMENTED MASTERY INSTRUCTION IN SIMULATION TRAINING. DOMAIN AND INSTRUCTIONAL KNOWLEDGE WERE REPRESENTED SEPARATELY IN THE SYSTEM; THEY COMMUNICATED THROUGH A GENERIC INTERFACE CALLED AN INSTRUCTIONAL CALCULUS MODEL. AN EXPERT TEACHER ...
