Short Title: Automated Assessment (Cohesion)
Responsible HRP Element: Behavioral Health and Performance
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):

1. Implement the ABCAT prototype system. We will revise our Phase I design based on early Phase II feedback from the sponsor and instantiate the end-to-end functionality of data acquisition, three stage processing, and finally presentation of the end results to an end-user (such as NASA Flight Surgeons)

2. Develop well-founded models for crew task performance, social interactions, and individual mental state. The Cybernet team’s expert in team cohesion, performance, and cognitive modeling will perform an early Phase II in-depth analysis of the modeling requirements in order to establish the ABCAT intermediate and final models that provide the most informative and reliable information to end users. Iterative modification to the model will occur as issues and revelations are encountered.

3. Test and evaluate the system’s ability to derive clear, objective measures from the suite of sensors and processing modules. Once the prototype ABCAT system has been implemented, we will field a set of sensors and gather and process the capture data for a long enough period of time that permits reasonable analysis of the results. We will internally review these results, identify changes that are required to mitigate issues or improve performance, and modify the ABCAT system’s design and processing accordingly. Once results are at a sufficiently high performance level, we will present the data and results to NASA flight surgeons for review and feedback and revise the system’s design and processing to address their comments.
