Advances in training technology are exciting—it’s tempting to invest right away. However, if you don’t first assess the impact of the technology on training transfer, new technology can provide little benefit… or worse, it can interfere with learning and reduce performance.
By observing, analyzing, and measuring trainee and trainer decision making and behaviors, our scientists and engineers design intuitive, multi-modal interfaces that are empirically measured to effectively transfer knowledge to trainees and build their skills.

VIRTUOSO is an interface to support natural human interactions in mixed reality, virtual reality, and augmented reality (MR/VR/AR) environments. Trainees can work independently because VIRTUOSO automatically assesses skill proficiency, but they can also receive feedback from expert trainers remotely observing their sessions. VIRTUOSO can significantly improve military medical training and education, such as combat casualty training.
VIRTUOSO is planned for Open-Source release in 2019.

Charles River Analytics conducts leading-edge AI, robotics, and human-machine interface R&D and leverages that R&D to create custom solutions for your organization.
At Charles River Analytics, we come to work every day because we want to develop technology for the hardest human-machine teaming problems that impact critical operations and decision-making. In 1983, we began focusing on research that leads to results, initially working for the US government. We became an employee-owned company in 2012, setting the stage for the next generation of innovation, service, and growth. Today, we have nearly 200 employees who work on R&D and commercial programs that make a difference for a “who’s who” of government and industry.
We have a stellar track record developing successful solutions for Government and commercial clients across a diverse collection of markets—defense, intelligence, medical technology, training, transportation, space, and cyber security. Our success is based on our expertise with advanced algorithms, machine learning, autonomous systems, advanced human-system interfaces, and agile software and hardware engineering. Focused research can make a positive difference, and that is our goal on each project we undertake. Our customer-centric focus guides us towards problems that matter, while our passion for science and engineering drives us to find impactful, actionable solutions.
