Abstract
HUMAN PERFORMANCE DEGRADATION OCCURS IN MILITARY SYSTEMS FOR MANY CAUSES. THE TEMPO OF OPERATION, PSYCHOLOGICAL STRESS AND THE COMPLEXITY OF WEAPONS SYSTEMS ALL TAKE THEIR TOLL. AS OPERATORS BECOME MORE INTERACTIVE WITH THEIR SYSTEMS, THEY ARE ASKED TO PERFORM MORE COMPLICATED WORK EVEN AS THEY ARE REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OF THEIR VEHICLES. FUTURE SYSTEMS ARE EXPECTED TO EMPHASIZE LIGHT DIVISION, SWIFTLY DEPLOYED FOR SMALL SCALE CONCOMMITANTS. THE PRESENT EFFORT PROPOSES A LITERATURE REVIEW OF THE APPLIED AND THEORETICAL LITERATURE. THESE FIELDS AND THEIR METHODS WILL BE INTEGRATED AND CRITICALLY EVALUATED IN CONNECTION WITH THE ASSESSMENT OF HUMAN PERFORMANCE IN DYNAMIC VEHICLE OPERATOR SETTINGS. WE OFFER A TAXONOMY WHICH PROPOSES THE USE OF FOUR CATEGORIES OF MANAGEMENT CONCERN REGARDING HUMAN RESOURCES: HEALTH & SAFETY BIODYNAMIC EFFECTS; CREATURE COMFORTS & CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM EFFECTS. THE ULTIMATE PRODUCTS WILL BE A REFERENCE LIST, AN INTEGRATED REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE AND A SOURCEBOOK WILL BE PREPARED.
