PERFORMANCE, RECOVERY AND MAN-MACHINE EFFECTIVENESS

The project is concerned with the assessment of human performance and recovery capabilities under relatively long duration conditions (two hours or more). Varying work/rest schedules and environments are among the variables manipulated, and the results relate to the doctrine of continuous operations. During this reporting period, a report was prepared describing the results of a study of 8 and 16 hours of continuous work; experiments were continued to ascertain the affects of methyl scoppolmine on (animal) response decrements; a report was begun on the relation between circadian rhythms and performance on a physical loading task; and research continued on heat stress limits for sedentary operations. Three papers were presented at meetings, three published, three accepted for publication, and four were submitted. This progress report contains a list of 27 topics of potential military relevance derived from the studies conducted from 1968 to the present. (Author)
