This research seeks to:
1. Develop a computational model of shared cognitive architectures (SCA) that accounts for
the role of the conceptual aspects of long duration space exploration (LDSE), the antecedents of SCA (e.g. team member characteristics, contextual factors, interventions), and consequences of SCA (e.g. norms, coordination, performance)
2. Devise and test a dashboard to unobtrusively identify and predict shifts in SCA that indicate increased risks, using data captured in meta-analysis, historiometric analysis, text analysis, virtual experiments, and a series of studies conducted in settings analogous to LDSE.
3. Develop and validate countermeasures based on dashboard predictions (e.g., composition and training of members of the space exploration multiteam system, including crew members, ground control, and other key boundary spanners).
