Short Title: Team State Lexical Analysis Software
Responsible HRP Element: Human Factors and Behavioral Performance
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Planned-Funded - Task expected to be within budget
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Based on previous work done within NASA and in the industry, this task will involve: a software interface for sociometric software tools previously delivered to NASA, combining automated transcription software to this interface plus analog feasibility testing. The automatic transcription tool will be identified with a prior technology watch. The sociometric software will involve a set of previously developed lexical and semantic analysis techniques capable of identifying individual and team psychosocial states (e.g., power dynamics, team identification) to provide crews with meaningful and useful feedback regarding relevant metrics. The integrated tool will have automated analysis capabilities to unobtrusively monitor communications of crews as a whole, and to detect and alert crews to any potential team disruptions in real-time. The tool will undergo initial feasibility testing with spaceflight analog audio data followed by more extensive analog testing.
