Densely tracked horizon mapping enables seismic interpreters to extract more information from their increasingly highresolution data. The potential benefits for improved well correlation, detailed facies mapping, and rock property estimation have been illustrated by the examples in this paper. The low-frequency model building case study illustrates how high-density horizon mapping is likely to impact future geological model building where the approach will deliver the greatest benefit. © 2010 Society of Exploration Geophysicists.

Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is associated with emotional and physical health problems, of which PTSD and depression are important mediators. Our Phase I research created a conceptual model for a user-friendly, empirically-based screening/tracking tool available to first responders and medical practitioners to screen for mTBI or other disorders. We assessed the co-occurrence of these co-morbid disorders with mTBI, determined the associated conditions, examined the implications, and evaluated diagnostic instruments that distinguish who is most at risk of impairment. From this information, JXT identified a pool of neuropsychological, neurological, physiological, and other test instruments for inclusion in a Statistical and Evidence-Grounded mTBI Evaluation and Neuro-assessment (SEGMEN) Tool. We documented important control and mediator variables; specified outcome variables; and prepared to evaluate the SEGMEN Tool in Phase II. This effort was driven by the innovative JXT Test Construction and Validation process model. We also created a conceptual demonstration of the SEGMEN Tool to assess usability and commercial potential. In Phase II, we will execute numerous, retrospective validation studies of the pool of test instruments, select the most powerful discriminators, and install them in a SEGMEN Tool prototype that can operate in stand-alone mode or integrated with Military Medical Systems located anywhere.

Cognitive readiness of individuals and teams is of increasing concern in network-centric warfare where teams play an increasingly vital role in networked military operations. Therefore, it is essential to expand the construct of cognitive readiness from individuals to team cognitive readiness through novel representations such as Team Mental Models (TMMs). In addition, there is interest in including tacit knowledge in the cognitive readiness construct to be incorporated in a TMM. This proposal asserts that tacit knowledge is largely the product of implicit learning and is the knowledge structure that is generated by this learning process. Using this theoretical approach, we propose to incorporate tacit knowledge into the appropriate dimensions of the cognitive readiness construct and assess and track it using a TMM conceptual design and innovative technologies available to the JXT Team. We propose to develop technologies to elicit tacit knowledge from team communication data, represent in our TMM conceptual design, develop techniques based on similarity indices to bring the TMM into alignment with team beliefs, and provide effective visualization techniques to foster intuitive understanding of the TMM. We call this tacit knowledge and cognitive readiness research program and prototype development ACRUT (Assessing Cognitive Readiness Using TMMs).

Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is strongly associated with emotional and physical health problems, of which PTSD and depression are important mediators. There is a significant overlap between of military members who have experienced and/or witnessed a life threatening event and sustained a blast or other TBI. There is a need to develop a user-friendly, empirically-based, neuropsychological screening tool to be used by first responders to screen for mTBI. In Phase I, JXT will assess the co-occurrence of these neurocognitive and emotional events, determine the problems and associated conditions, examine the long term implications and evaluate diagnostic instruments in order to distinguish who is most at risk for becoming impaired. From this information, JXT will identify a pool of neuropsychological and emotional health test items to be used to construct a Statistical and Evidence-Grounded mTBI Evaluation and Neuro-assessment (SEGMEN) Tool; identify and document important control and mediator variables; specify the criterion/outcome variables; and prepare to evaluate the reliability and validity of the SEGMAN Tool in Phase II. This effort will be driven by the innovative JXT Test Construction and Validation Process Model. We will also create an automated conceptual demonstration of the SEGMEN Tool to assess usability and commercial potential.

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Summary/Abstract The goal of this project is to develop a suite of multi-function mobile apps using smart phone technology and designed for use by emergency medical and public safety workers during emergency medical/disaster response. This Emergency Medical and Public Safety Apps (EMPSA) suite will provide 1) just-in-time training, 2) review of critical safety, protocol, procedure and equipment information, and 3) electronic tools for use on- scene to support andenhance worker performance and effectiveness. The need for additional functionality and capability will be investigated during Phase I. These apps are needed to provide just-in-time support to EMPS workers prior to and during response to varied situationsand conditions which, while often similar, are rarely the same. The content developed for the apps will be presented using appropriate multi-media and delivered in the context of user selectable operational scenarios. The apps will be designed for compatibility with existing and emerging mobile computers and smart phones such as iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, Blackberry and HP TouchPad. The apps will also be developed so they are compatible with and can be integrated into internal worker training programs and used to extend that knowledge and training to a mobile platform in an operational setting. The Phase 1 research objectives are to 1) identify worker groups within the target population; 2) develop a complete list of the apps most needed, 3) determine content requirements for each app; 4) design, develop and test one app for concept demonstration; 5) assess the feasibility, commercial potential and FDA approval requirements; and 6) prepare a Final Report of project activities, the results obtained and a draft Phase II Human Use Protocol (HUP). The ADDIE Instructional Systems Development (ISD) methodology will be used together with a blended learning approach for the training function of the apps. Software development and testing will be accomplished using the spiral systems development method. The JXT Team includes emergency medical/public safety collaborators, the Dayton Fire Department, Dayton, OH and the West Carrollton Fire Department, West Carrollton Ohio. The Dayton Fire Department (DFD) serves a mid-size city and the West Carrollton Fire Department (WCFD) a small city. They are representative of the vast majority of fire/rescue departments across the United States that respond daily to emergency situations within their communities and beyond during major disasters and bring extensive knowledge and expertise in operational emergency medicine, public safety and in the Metropolitan Medical Response System (MMRS) and Regional Medical Response system (RMRS) which DFD manages. Our DFD and WCFD collaborators have identified three initial apps to be developed (triage, medications, functional needs shelter triage. Content will be developed for each of the initial apps during Phase I and the triage app will be developed as an early prototype/concept demonstrator.With the expert assistance of our collaborators, we expect this project to result in the development of a suite of multi-function apps that are well suited to the needs of EMPS workers and can be effectively used by them on the job to increase safety and improve performance during response to emergency medical/disaster situations. PUBLIC HEALTH RELEVANCE: Project Narrative This research relates to the development of a suite of interactive multi-function applications (apps) that can be downloaded toa mobile computing device such as a smart phone (iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, Blackberry, HP TouchPad, other) and used by emergency medical and public safety workers prior to and during response to an emergency/disaster situation. The expected outcome isa series of multi-function apps that provide just-in- time training, review of critical information (safety, protocols, operatng procedures, equipment) and electronic tools to support on-scene job activities. The apps will augment current training and tools to enhance performance, improve coordination, save lives, reduce secondary injuries and provide better casualty care.

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant) The proposed e-learning course for WMD/HAZMAT Protection Training (PROTECT) for Health Professionals performing as skilled support personnel (SSP) in community based medical offices / clinics / urgent care /schools and elsewhere will be available on a 24/7/365 basis and provide much needed assistance in recognizing the symptoms of Avian Influenza / Pandemic Influenza, properly protecting themselves against it, reporting it to the Incident Command System (ICS) when it occurs and following up that report in a coordinating role if so tasked. This includes understanding the hazards and effects, properly identifying items of protective equipment, gaining knowledge of how to don (put on) them correctly, how to perform essential roles and responsibilities while wearing protective equipment, hazards to be aware of when wearing it, how to properly doff and dispose of it and how to properly decontaminate oneself. The Phase II technical approach will focus on applying the Instructional Systems Development (ISD) methodology to the design, development, testing and evaluation of the prototype course. PROTECT e-learning components will include a web portal, learning management system (LMS), instructional content (lesson materials) and intelligent tutor exercises. At the web portal, SSP will be able to access the PROTECT e-learning course through which they will gain the training necessary to protect themselves properly and still perform their duties effectively when responding to a WMD / HAZMAT (Avian Flu / Pandemic Flu) incident. The course will be learner centered and instructional materials will focus on doing rather than telling. Through the exercises the learner must apply the knowledge learned in the lessons to solve real-world problems he/she is likely to encounter. Public health and emergency response organizations are ready now to use effective training of this type for SSP and to augment their current internal training in the proper use of protective equipment and interaction with the ICS.
