Abstract:

In sustained military operations involving round-the-clock missions and travel around the globe, biomathematical models of human performance have potential as tools for predicting the fatigue and performance of sleep-deprived soldiers. This project investigates hybrid neural network/parametric models to address specific gaps in current performance models, identified in the 2002 Fatigue and Performance Modeling Workshop and outlined in the Program Solicitation. This project will follow a conventional life-cycle development protocol where models are systematically developed using novel hybrid techniques, validated, and refined to produce an operationally relevant model. The project's main deliverable will be a proposed algorithm for hybrid neural network/parametric performance prediction in the field given unknown individual trait characteristics and uncertain current state, and a comparative analysis to parametric algorithms.
