PHASE II:This phase will consist of the development, demonstration, and delivery of a working prototype. It is expected that an iterative design and development of components of the system will be needed. To insure good acceptance by the user community, the government will insure that the necessary users are available for evaluation of prototype interfaces etc. The Armys IRB will need to approve any human subjects research. To facilitate approval, no PII needs to be collected for the demonstration. Determining the potential for this system to be commercially viable requires that the systems ability to deliver the seven capabilities described above (see phase 1) be adequately demonstrated. In this phase the vendor will have to provide a plan for demonstrating each of these capabilities along with criteria for success or failure for approval by the government. Given the time frame, it will probably not be possible to demonstrate the effectiveness of interventions. The operational environment in this case is the basic training environment. Participants will be available as needed for this demonstration. Phase II deliverables include full system design and specifications to include executable and source code. It is expected that the final deliverable will be at a technology readiness level (TRL) 6 (System/ subsystem model or prototype demonstration in a relevant environment). As this prototype is a software architecture utilizing COTS hardware, achieving TRL 6 demonstration should be feasible. 2516d825b2
