The A-Measure® Platform measures human decisions and actions in mission-critical environments. Made up of four products, A-Measure allows you to track, analyze, store, understand, and visualize human performance in real time. These three products can be used as an integrated system, individually, or in specific combinations, depending on the customer’s needs.
With A-Measure, all measures are written and processed in an emerging SISO standard called HPML (Human Performance Markup Language). HPML provides both a schema for representing measures, and a means to report results and assessments.
Mobile apps for real-time observer-based measures
To understand what is going on inside an instructor’s head, in the team dynamics, or inside the student’s thought processes, A-Measure’s SPOTLITE® tool provides observer-based measurement. Used with PM Engine or as a standalone application, SPOTLITE allows observers to subjectively rate and understand the performance of students and instructors in real time. SPOTLITE is a mobile application that offers the user flexibility to move within the training environment to maximize situation awareness as the training exercise unfolds.
For system-based measurements within distributed environments
PM Engine is A-Measure’s system-based measurement tool that enables you to collect data from many different types of data sources. PM Engine works with any type of data, allowing you to quickly implement new ways to connect to different data sources, including: neurological, physiological, simulator data (HLA, DIS), built in instructor operator station control, communications, and audio. All of these data sources–and others–can be connected into PM Engine.
For storing measures and assessments, and performing data analytics
The A-Measure Server ApplicationTM (ASA) is a SQL server database that allows instructors and users to store and persist team and individual training information. Performance results are stored in relational tables that label the data according to desired meta information such as task/event type, conditions, standards, date, location, and learning objectives. In addition, the ASA stores measures to recall and use later in SPOTLITE and PM Engine. The ASA also provides a number of services for exporting that data into the format of your choice, as well as providing that information in a number of different After Action Reviews (AARs) and trend analyses.
For analysis, visualization, and feedback
The Performance Dashboard is A-Measure’s data front end. The Performance Dashboard features web-based displays and filtering tools that allow you to analyze performance data captured by PM Engine and SPOTLITE, in both real time and post mission (e.g., debrief, after action review). In real time, you can see performance results as they are captured, allowing you to gain and maintain an accurate understanding of trainee state and make timely adjustments to the training environment as needed to better the development experience.
