Subcontracting Goal:
Past Performance: OPM-01-02EA3TT997, Ready 2010: The Coast Guard’s Strategic Performance Support System for the Sector Command Center’s Analysis

An ongoing effort, IDSI performed an analysis to define the new Command Center Watchstander Knowledge and Skill Development Continuum. The continuum is the roadmap for the optimal sequencing of essential watchstander knowledge and skills throughout a watchstander’s career. This continuum provides the critical foundation for watchstander training design and ensures watchstanders develop the necessary knowledge and skills to meet the command centers’ mission requirements.

GS-23-0192P, Joint Live Virtual Constructive (JLVC) Near Term NSC / JNTC General Support Team (GST)

IDSI provides all personnel, supervision, and services necessary to establish and maintain the Joint Live Virtual Constructive (JLVC) General Support Team (GST). The JLVC environment links constructive and virtual training simulations with live training forces. IDSI has resident End-to-End system engineers and software developers qualified on all Simulations and C4I Systems comprising the JLVC federation including JCATS, FireSim, MUSE, VRSG, SELS, TACSIM, JDLM, EADSIM, GCCS-A, C2PC, MCS, ASAS-L, AFATDS, AMDWS/FAADEO, MUSE/TCSS, JSWS-L, BCS3, ASAS-RWS. The IDSI JLVC GST members are experts on every model.

The IDSI JLVC GST members have been the principle developers for many of the government sponsored tools and interfaces utilized in the JLVC including HLA-DIS Converter (HDC), Object Model Template Reader (OMTR), Master Station Log (MSL), AnalySIM (Simulation Analyst), HLAnalyzer (High Level Architecture Analyzer), Joint Deployment After Action Review System (JDAARS), Low Overhead Driver (LOD), Simulation-C4I Interchange Module for Plans Logistics and Exercises (SIMPLE).

IDSI is recognized as the single company providing “End-to-End System Engineers” (E2ESE) experienced in all Joint and Army Battle Command Systems applications. All E2ESE’s possess advanced civilian education degrees and years of practical application experience in the military. In some cases, advanced military training is recognized as equivalent to civil education in comparable technical areas.

N00174-05-D-0003 – 0038, CORM 2004 Learning Content Package in S1000D: The Bike Example, IDSI was awarded the S1000D/Bike project to develop a S1000D-based SCORM content package that teaches the maintenance and operational procedures of the S1000D bicycle. The project requirements include accommodating all bike technical data in the training, applying S1000D 4.0 and SCORM 2004, maximizing reuse of data modules and illustrations that populate the bicycle manual, providing an S1000D SCORM Content Package Model (SCPM), applying a learning data module coding analysis to the bicycle curriculum consistent with and based upon the existing data module coding in the bicycle TM data modules, applying the appropriate “learnCode” in the data module code to represent the chosen instructional learning strategy, applying the “learnEventCode” according the S1000D 4.0 specification. The final deliverable supports real-time updates of all SCOs in the content package regardless of distributed format. For example, a change to a data module shall be reflected in a flash format after the data module is saved and the SCO is recompiled. IDSI also provided strategic consulting and advisement on promoting S1000D-SCORM harmonization as part of a suite of logistics and life cycle solutions to Navy management and key policy makers.

N00174-05-D-0003-0025, S1000D For In-Service Engineering Agent Life Cycle Support Processes: Applying S1000D to AEGIS Stable Master Oscillator Logistics Documentation, The STAMO project was a classic systems engineering task requiring the integration of tech data and training utilizing the principles of the S1000D International Standard for Documentation to produce logistics products from a Common Source Database (CSDB). Versions of the STAMO were detailed in simulations and reused for testing and evaluation, training, and maintenance scenarios. In each scenario, specific data modules were imported into the simulation to enhance context, usability and comprehensibility. This project demonstrated how a selected suite of STAMO logistics documents, including tech data, tech training, testing and evaluation, engineering drawings, PMS cards and procurement, can all be managed by the S1000D specification. All logistics content will be stored in a single common source database (CSDB). The cost, schedule, and performance of this contract met and/or exceeded all contractual requirements in spite of significant obstacles encountered at the project’s initiation.

N00174-05-D-0003-10, Maintenance, Material, Management (3M) System: Analysis, Design, And Development Of Asynchronous Self-Paced Learning Content for the ILE, IDSI designed and developed over 200 hours of asynchronous, multimedia, technical, distance-learning training for the ILE on the Navy 3M program. The Center for Service Support (CSS) identified a need to provide a revised/enhanced curriculum in a self-paced, interactive delivery format to improve the 3M cognitive skill development of fleet operators and maintainers. CSS engaged IDSI to first perform a broad design analysis to determine the level and quality of training currently in the Fleet, to identify the performance challenges facing 3M users, and to design and develop self-paced courseware.

With the lessons learned from the design analysis in mind, IDSI took on the task of designing and developing learner-centric CBT to provide a knowledge and performance base regarding the tasks performed within the 3M system. The courseware is being developed using Evolution and will meet interactivity levels 1 and 2. The target course length is estimated at 190-200 hours and is being hosted in the Navy’s Integrated Learning Environment (ILE) on Navy Knowledge Online (NKO). The target audience for the 3M CBT consists of fleet operators and maintainers, including the following watchstations: Maintenance Person, Repair Parts Petty Officer, Work Center Supervisor, Division Officer, and Department Head.

N00174-05-D-0003, Technical Services Support to the Naval Education and Training Command and Human Performance Center, IDSI provided technical services and consulting support to the NETC and Human Performance Center (HPC). IDSI provides a variety of services and supports a broad array of projects to include Consulting and facilitation support for critical high-level meetings with senior leadership to develop overarching vision, strategies, strategic goals and objectives, metrics, and tactical implementation plans for initiatives such as Balanced Score Card.
