Aptima Featured in Current Issue of Military Training & Simulation News
Woburn, Mass. – January 17, 2017 – Aptima, Inc., a leader in human performance engineering for defense, intel, aviation, law enforcement, and healthcare, was featured in the January-February 2017 issue of Military Training & Simulation News, a publication available online and in print.
The article, entitled “Getting Serious,” focused on how several companies including Aptima are tackling the challenges of serious games for military training. The featured companies ranged from large defense prime contractor Bohemia Interactive Simulations to innovative small businesses like Aptima to demonstrate the range of challenges and solutions across the serious games spectrum.
The article reported that Aptima and partner Alelo are developing a language learning system for the Department of Defense called “Allearn,” which will provide soldiers pre-deployment training for language proficiency. Allearn combines Alelo’s experience in creating engaging language training games with Aptima’s Advanced Learning Management (ALM) algorithms which determine the most appropriate content to offer up, selecting and sequencing it to form the building blocks or scaffolding for the next level of skills. ALM continually assesses and re-assesses the trainee, tailoring the content and learning path until they’ve mastered the requisite skills. The initial version of Allearn is being designed for use in classrooms teaching Arabic.
Aptima has a 15 year track record in the Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) training industry, where the company applies its deep expertise in how humans think, learn, and behave to the goal of advancing force readiness. By measuring and assessing performance, Aptima’s tools and technologies provide a successive cycle of insight, feedback, and augmentation that accelerates learning and enhances human-machine performance.
