Navy enlists Stottler Henke for intelligent tutoring

The Navy has awarded Stottler Henke Associates Inc. a contract to develop software to enhance a simulation-based training system for tactical action officers.

The contract builds on previous work the company performed developing an intelligent tutoring system for the Navy's tactical action officers.

Under the contract, Stottler Henke of San Mateo, Calif., will develop software to be used during training exercises for tactical operations officers at the Surface Warfare Officer's School in Rhode Island. The software runs on a Watchstation simulator made by Northrop Grumman Corp. The contract is valued at $2.5 million.

A tactical action officer is responsible for a ship's weapons and sensors and directs the movements of ships, planes, missiles and submarines in the ship's region. The officer integrates the information in real time to form a tactical picture, select appropriate responses and issue orders.
