Methods and Technologies for Personalized Learning, Modeling and Assessment

Funding Agency:
Department of Defense

This effort is an open-ended BAA soliciting innovative research concepts in the development, test, and validation of training approaches to learning and performance. It includes modeling and the design and execution of laboratory and field studies to evaluate alternative live, virtual, and constructive approaches, solutions, and practices in military and civilian mission areas such as autonomous operations, manned and unmanned air and ground operations, command and control, cyber operations, emergency response, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance, tactical air combat, and integrated air, land, sea and space operations.

White Papers will be accepted until 17 Nov 2019, 5 PM Wright-Patterson AFB Local Time. Only white papers are due at this time.
