Aptima Named to Military Training International’s 2016 Top Simulation and Training Companies for 11th Consecutive Year and Awarded Blue Ribbon for Innovation

Woburn, MA – September 19, 2016 – Aptima, Inc., the leading human-centered engineering 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, has been selected for the 11th consecutive year by Military Training International (MTI) for its annual list of “Top Simulation and Training Companies.” In addition, the company has been awarded a Blue Ribbon for Innovation within the industry.

Making training more adaptive and personalized through Advanced Learning Management

Aptima received the Blue Ribbon for Innovation for taking its A-Measure performance measurement software to the next level, integrating it with the company’s model-based Advanced Learning Management capability which dynamically adapts instruction to optimize each trainee’s learning during training. By simulating the mission demands operators encounter, measuring their progress and performance, and tailoring their instruction, the system will remove the typical limitations of one-size-fits-all training. This in turn will ensure trainees are focused on developing the essential skills, delivering the greatest return on training investment.

A-Measure is Aptima’s flagship platform for understanding how humans perform in human-machine teams. A-Measure is made up of three products that allow you to track, analyze, store, understand, and visualize human performance in real-time. These three products can be used as an integrated system, or individually in specific combinations, depending on the customer’s needs:

  • PM Engine™ – Calculate and assess performance measures (PMs) from data generated during simulation-based exercises to provide real-time feedback. Uses HPML (Human Performance Markup Language) to handle data from a variety of sources, including distributed simulation networks (HLA, DIS), log files, and SPOTLITE®.
  • SPOTLITE® Real-time assessment of team and individual performance in live and simulated environments. Hand-held data collection device enables evaluators to collect, access, analyze, and provide formative feedback immediately following exercises.
  • Performance Dashboard™ – Analyze and visualize data from PM Engine and SPOTLITE in both real time and after action. In real time, see exactly the performance that is happening as it happens to make quick adjustments to the training environment or note areas of improvement as the training scenario unfolds.
