Charles River Analytics’ MEDIC System Aids US Army Trainers by Assessing Cognitive Workload

Scientists and software engineers at Charles River Analytics have created a system to assist trainers in the US Army. Military medical personnel may be deployed to operational environments where their success in saving lives depends on their ability to act quickly and effectively, both as individuals and as teams. Effective training must go beyond individual skills to include interactions among team members, and how those interactions transfer to operational environments. Charles River designed Augmented Training by Monitoring, Extracting, and Decoding Indicators of Cognitive Load, or MEDIC, as a multimodal suite of unobtrusive, field-ready neurophysiological, physiological, and behavioral sensors. MEDIC automatically senses indicators of cognitive workload to augment performance observations, offering insight into factors underlying that performance.
