Technology Demonstrations

Booth #613 – Aptima, Inc.: Are your trainees learning? How do you know?

Aptima’s mission is to optimize the performance of humans learning and operating in technology intensive, mission critical settings including defense, intel, aviation, law enforcement, and healthcare. We apply deep expertise in how humans think, learn, and behave to the goal of advancing readiness. Join us in Booth #613 at I/ITSEC 2018 as we demonstrate how Aptima’s tools combine measurement with learning data analytics and personalized adaptive training to provide a successive cycle to measure, analyze, understand, and optimize human performance. The result is accelerated learning and enhanced human-machine teaming in preparation for the challenges that lie ahead—for individuals, teams, and the entire workforce.

Booth #1086 – I/ITSEC Launchpad Booth: Sailor Adaptive Intelligent Life-Long Learning system (SAIL3)

SAIL3—the Sailor Adaptive Intelligent Life-Long Learning system—is an innovative proficiency and readiness system that uses advanced data analytics, human performance and learning sciences, and AI-based machine learning to provide Sailors with a “learning GPS” throughout their careers.  Accessing SAIL3 at the point of need, on personal digital devices or through a Navy managed system, Sailors will be able to manage all aspects of their career, training, and compensation concerns—anytime/anywhere. At the same time, SAIL3 will provide leaders and commanders with a continuous assessment of personnel proficiency and mission readiness at the Navy enterprise level. Demonstration:  Wednesday November 28, 4:00 PM (Session 3: Performance Measurement)

Booth #329 – US Army RDECOM: Teamwork Tutor

Teamwork skills are increasingly recognized as critical components of mission performance. Breakdowns in these skills can lead to mission failure, loss of resources, or even loss of life. Training these skills, however, have proven difficult. ARL-STTC and Aptima are demonstrating the Teamwork Tutor system which builds upon the Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) to provide realistic teamwork skill training in a virtual environment.

Booth – #339 – Soar Technology, Inc.: Spartan After Action Review (SPAAR) tool

Aptima, in partnership with Soar Technology, has developed SPAAR, the Spartan After Action Review tool for the Office of Naval Research. SPAAR allows users to utilize multiple time-synced video, overhead map, and other real-time data feeds for quick and effective after-action reviews. With SPAAR, the United States Marine Corps is able to efficiently access more data than ever before to aid in the training of small unit decision making.

Booth #2461 – Ravenswood Solutions Booth: Team Performance in Live Training Environments

Ravenswood and Aptima are demonstrating a combined capability to measure and track all aspects of team performance in live training environments. Ravenswood’s Orion platform tracks, in real time, the movement and actions of participants in the environment and provides 3D mapping, video, and audio replay of training events. Aptima’s SPOTLITE integrates observer performance ratings and video markup of critical training feedback. Finally, Aptima’s ACCRUE software provides analysis and visualization of team communications to identify breakdowns or highlight successes in coordination among team members.
