Dignitas Awarded Flexible and Live Adaptive Training Tools (FLATT) Phase II SBIR
Posted on February 8, 2021
Dignitas Technologies, LLC (Dignitas) has been awarded the Flexible and Live Adaptive Training Tools (FLATT) Phase II SBIR. The FLATT technology will add additional flexibility, intuitiveness, and robustness to our service-oriented architecture (SOA)-based Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) authoring tool to rapidly implement trainee state-driven customizations (TSCs) of virtual training environments (VTEs). Trainers will be able to increase the effectiveness of training solutions by characterizing a learner’s state and then adapting the training.
FLATT addresses a common problem in the flexible use of adaptive learning systems across a wide variety of domains by instructional designers. Our development plan includes integration with the VBS game environment, which benefits the many training and research instances in active use by DoD, academia, and industry. The VBS transition addresses the needs of the Games For Training (GFT) program for an ability to easily incorporate adaptive learning.
FLATT development also includes integration with the virtual training tool used by the Synthetic Training Environment (STE) to benefit future Army training initiatives. The transition to STE recognizes the direction of the training industry away from GFT to the STE gaming environment for training. STE is in its initial stages of development and Dignitas is involved with technology injection for adaptive learning.
Dignitas Technologies, established in 2004, is dedicated to understanding customer Modeling, Simulation, & Training (MS&T) needs and providing specialized, architecture-centric, agile solutions. We specialize in system and software analysis, design, development, testing, and fielding of MS&T and mission rehearsal applications.
