CogniSens has been pushing its NeuroTracker technology toward the sporting arena with some success. But if the goal is to ultimately handle, track, identify, and even target more items accurately, then it clearly seems that there are Cyber Special Operations Force applications. The introduction video is fairly straight forward. Work to progress on monitoring multiple targets continuously for a certain period of time. This will allow you the ability over time to sharpen your skills. But what if the items you’re tracking are both physical and virtual? Would this training technology help?
I believe something like this could significantly improve the ability of a Battle Watch Captain (BWC) or Tactical Action Officer (TAO) for a unit or force in a command center to not only be able to handle more items effectively but to significantly improve the ability to mitigate and prevent “wash over,” when there simply is too much for the individual to process, and possibly improve the OODA loop process for our favor. Obviously this could improve the response time in a physical realm but I’d be very interested in metrics toward tracking and improvement in the virtual or cyber realm. We’re trying to build the best right? The Cyber Warriors that can handle anything – the Cyber Special Operations Forces (CSOF) as it were via some Cognitive Warfare.
We’ve all seen an individual that is able to track and handle 10x to 20x more than the average individual… why not train to be able to track and handle 50x to 100x of the average individual? I think this is a very untapped area of gains the U.S. Military can make. It simply needs to arrive in an affordable package that doesn’t have a massive administrative or cost tail associated.
