OSD/Air Force awards IAI a follow-on contract to develop a Real-Time Cognitive Readiness Assessment Tool

Military planners use cognitive readiness assessment to judge the ability of troops to adapt to mission needs as a mission evolves. There is a critical need for real-time cognitive readiness assessment tools for Special Forces “quick-strike” missions. To address this, IAI and its collaborator, Lockheed Martin, are developing an integrated, extensible and real-time cognitive readiness assessment tool for mission planning, named ICR. This tool is being developed using advanced data warehousing, data mining, and data visualization technology. ICR has three software components in three layers. The information source layer includes software components for data integration and model incorporation to integrate cognitive readiness related data and models from multiple sources. The model and process layer includes the integrated data and model fusion component that combines a unified data mining and fusion abstraction model with comprehensive model composition. The presentation layer includes software components for research and data visualization, and an interactive user interface. GIS integration incorporates location and map information into the cognitive readiness assessment process, providing real-time, intuitive and content rich data representation. ICR leverages existing data sources and software tools, including IAI’s distributed data mining tool, ABMiner, and JNI (Java Native Interface) and web service integration. A robust interactive user experience is provided with advanced RCP, Web 2.0 technology and the powerful visualization tool of ABMiner. ICR will be useful to researchers in the laboratory and decision makers in the field. It also has commercial applications in determining operator readiness in areas like air traffic control, ship piloting, commercial and private aircraft, and other public transportation involving the use of potentially dangerous equipment.
