Title: Overview of the First Advanced Technology Evaluations for ASSIST
Published: January 31, 2006
Abstract: ASSIST (Advanced Soldier Sensor Information Systems Technology) is a DARPA-funded effort whose goal is to exploit soldier-worn sensors to augment the soldier s recall and reporting capability to enhance situation understanding. ASSIST is separated into two tasks; Task 1 focuses on the hardware and Task 2 focuses on the software. NIST role in this program is to develop and implement evaluation procedures to characterize the performance of the software components developed under Task 2. This paper provides an overview of the ASSIST program, the evaluation procedures, the metrics that the evaluation procedures were addressing, and the technology being evaluated.
