Abstract:

This report details the work done by Honeywell Aerospace Advanced Technology to address two key challenges in the transition of Augmented Cognition AugCog technology to the Armys Future Force 1 integration of the Honeywell AugCog system into the Future Force Warrior FFW Soldier system and 2 deployment and evaluation of the dry electrodes for the collection of electroencephalogram EEG data under the helmet in an operational environment. Separate evaluations were conducted to test the success of both efforts. The Honeywell team successfully integrated and executed the AugCog hardware and software within the FFW Leader System Software during the U.S. Armys Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance C4ISR 2007 on-the-Move OTM Event. The team then collected electrocardiogram ECG and EEG data on the third squad leader, during force-on-force exercises, of a signal quality sufficient to classify cognitive state classification in a harsh operational environment. Accordingly, encouraging results showed 80 classification of workload in the field with EEG alone, thereby advancing the deployability of EEG sensor systems. Together, these successes represent an advance in integration maturity of the AugCog system as it moves towards transition into the Armys future systems.
