Advanced Systems for Realistic Training
Incorporation of adaptive simulation-based training provides numerous benefits to both the military and commercial industries. Simulation-based training is becoming increasingly widespread in today's world with the advancement of more sophisticated computers allowing more complex and realistic training scenarios to be simulated. Trainers and instructors seek for new, more advanced, methods to apply innovative technology to enhance their training programs.
Since KBSI focuses on system development, integration, installation, and insertion of innovative and novel technology into existing systems, KBSI delivers adaptive and innovative training and simulation training models and technologies across a variety of defense entities and industry. Our training and simulation capabilities include
KBSI leveraged its expertise in data mining technologies and concepts to implement automated scenario generation, real-time performance assessment, and skill classification in its Intelligent Scenario Management Framework (ISMF) effort for NAVAIR. The highly skilled KBSI team developed a series of alternate training scenarios using the IDEF3 methodology and KBSI's IDEF3-based software, the ProSim® tool. The ProSim® tool was also used to integrate, store, manage, process, and disseminate training scenarios. The automated simulation model generation capability in the ProSim® tool built and analyzed the initial simulation models. In terms of automated scenario generation for Naval Aviator training, KBSI demonstrated that they can be used to capture the knowledge and intuitions of trainers, and to support reasons for both generic scenario planning and individual student remediation scenario re-planning.
Few efforts are likely to have greater significance to our warfighting capability than those aimed at dramatically improving the skills, knowledge, and experience of individual decision makers. Increasingly, decision makers at every echelon are expected to consistently make the right decisions, at the right time, in highly ambiguous, pressure-laden situations. Their decisions must be timely, well reasoned, and capable of withstanding harsh scrutiny by both the media and the court of public opinion. As evidenced by recent world events, the decisions and actions of even the most junior military members can become the most prominent symbols of American foreign policy. Hence, individual decision-making competence increasingly influences far more than the outcome of the immediate tactical situation. Their decisions can also have a profound impact on the operational and strategic situation as well.
KBSI’s Battlespace Superiority Through Better Decision Making (SuperCision™) effort for the Air Force Research Laboratory designed methods and tools to i) more accurately assess individual decision-making effectiveness, ii) help train military decision makers to dramatically, and predictably, improve their decision-making skills, knowledge, and experience, and iii) provide the foundations for helping institutionalize a career-long endeavor to master the art of decision-making among military professionals. The system concept includes capture of experienced decision makers know-how and delivery of a personal decision making improvement resource via a web portal.
