The Local Analysis and Prediction System combines numerous data sources into a set of analyses and forecasts on a 10-km grid with high temporal resolution. To arrive at an analysis of cloud cover, several input analyses are combined with surface aviation observations and pilot reports of cloud layers. These input analyses are a skin temperature analysis(More)
The goal of this study was to demonstrate a measurable correlation between facial temperature changes and the human learning process. This study also introduces a method for determining sufficient training time by monitoring the cognitive load of the learner as indicated by changes in facial temperature. A non-invasive method using an infrared camera was(More)
CT studies on 212 normal elderly individuals were analyzed for ventricular enlargement and cortical atrophy. Results show a positive correlation between ventricular enlargement and age with greater degrees of ventricular enlargement and cortical atrophy in men as compared to women. While some degree of atrophy is common in normal elderly individuals it is(More)
The current research sought to construct a computational model of human navigation for virtual three dimensional environments. The model was implemented within the ACT-R cognitive architecture [1]. The navigation model incorporates visual search, encoding object features and spatial relationships, motion, obstacle avoidance, and incidental visual memory.
The Local Analysis and Prediction System (LAPS) combines numerous data sources into a set of analyses and forecasts on a 10-km grid with high temporal resolution. To arrive at an analysis of cloud cover, several input analyses are combined with World Meteorological Organization (WMO) standard Aviation Routine Weather Reports (METARs) and pilot reports of(More)
Opinions or points of view expressed are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the official position or policies of the U.S. Project Abstract Law enforcement officers must process and respond to a variety of information sources to effectively and safely patrol the environment. These demands on attention, such as dispatch radio calls, are(More)
The current research conducted a cross-validation between an infrared motion capture system and an electromechanical motion capture device. No differences were found between the motion capture methods in shoulder and elbow angles. However, differences were found between the motion capture methods on distances of hand movements and actor location in space.(More)
