A proven approach that enhances operational safety and performance.
Cortexia have developed the Argos Protocol; an objective investigation into your operations focussed on how well your staff and organisational systems anticipate and manage threats and errors. The observations are driven internally and in 'live' environments by your own well regarded staff/operators. This allows us to monitor risk, and build tailored and targeted workshops along with in situ coaching, based on proven countermeasures and techniques sourced from Special Forces, the US Navy's Top Gun Flight School, Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology, Sports Psychology and High Reliability Organisations.

They are, however, limited in assessing the full range of impacts resulting from technology insertions and in exploring the links between C2 changes and battlefield effects. Additionally, traditional C2 frameworks have … Read More
Human factors and decision making on the race circuit has become embodied with technology, creating a form of ‘cognitive circuitry’ between mind and environment. The importance placed upon the environment when considering cognition is a relatively new approach to viewing human thinking and problem solving, and has been referred to as ‘distributed cognition’ or ‘extended mind’. The … Read More
