Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Steven M. Shope, President
Award Amount: $749,002.00
Abstract:
The Air Force Research Laboratory has identified the need for a software tool that supports and augments Distributed Mission Operations (DMO) training by providing psychometrically valid assessments of an individual's mission essential knowledge as a result of performance during DMO training… More

Dynamical Modeling of Communications for Assessment and Enhancement of Team Performance

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: ARIZONA STATE UNIV.
Principal Investigator: Steven M. Shope, President
Award Amount: $69,889.00
RI Contact: Polemnia G. Amazeen
Abstract:
Defense transformation and network-centric operations have created a need for highly-responsive, networked teams of individuals. Individuals on those teams each contribute a unique but complementary sets of skills and knowledge (and multicultural backgrounds), but a major challenge in forming teams… More
