Aptima Presents Human-System Performance Assessment Solutions at ISAP 2013
Company’s sense-assess-augment capabilities enable rich, timely evaluations in complex, system-based work environments
Dayton, OH, May 14, 2013 – Aptima, Inc., the leading human-centered R&D company that applies expertise in the disciplines of how humans think, learn, and behave to solve challenges faced by the U.S. Department of Defense, presented its Human-System Performance Assessment capability at the 2013 International Symposium on Aviation Psychology, held May 6-9 at Wright State University in Dayton.
Aptima, which was also an ISAP corporate sponsor, hosted an exhibit displaying work in support of the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Human Universal Measurement and Assessment Network (HUMAN) Laboratory. The company’s unique blend of tools, technologies, and services offers a powerful, generalizable way to optimize human system performance. These solutions:
- Sense human operators at work
- Assess the interaction between humans and technology
- Augment these interactions through advanced system design
Mr. Kevin Durkee, Aptima’s Human-System Performance Assessment Lead, also presented a poster session entitled, “A Physiological-based Framework For Adaptive Aiding In Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) Operations.” The poster showcased Aptima’s state-of-the-art work in neurological and psychophysiological data modeling to estimate and predict operator states for the purpose of optimizing human performance augmentations. This material was based upon work supported by the Air Force Research Laboratory through the HUMAN Laboratory.

About the AFRL HUMAN Laboratory
The Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) Human Universal Measurement and Assessment Network (HUMAN) Laboratory provides a powerful capability to Sense, Assess, and Augment human performance. The HUMAN approach capitalizes on advancements in neuroscience, psychophysiological assessment, and computational modeling to provide data acquisition and analytic capabilities for timely, reliable, and contextually-rich assessments. Through these capabilities, HUMAN provides a framework for guiding how to augment the human operator, through a variety of actionable methods and technologies, to maximize performance and sustain optimal functional states. The HUMAN approach can be used to improve human-technology performance in a wide range of systems in military, medical and other critical applications.
