Abstract
THIS SBIR PHASE I EFFORT PROPOSES A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE TO IDENTIFY ALTERNATIVE MODELS FOR CATEGORIZING THE TRAINING OF THOSE INDIVIDUALS WITH DIFFERING LEVELS OF WORKLOAD TOLERANCE. POSSIBLE INTERVENTION TECHNIQUES WILL BE ANALYZED IN TERMS OF THIS MODEL, AND A TRAINING ENHANCEMENT TECHNIQUE WILL BE PROPOSED. THE MODEL OF SECRIST (1989) WILL PROVIDE A STARTING POINT FOR SYNTHESIZING AN INTERVENTION TECHNIQUE TO IMPROVE WORKLOAD TOLERANCE IN IDENTIFIED LOW TOLERANT SOLDIERS. NEURAL NETWORK USAGE WILL BE USED IN MODEL DEVELOPMENT AND WILL BE CONSIDERED IN DESIGNING AN INTERVENTION TECHNIQUE. PLANS FOR CONDUCTING A PHASE II EFFORT TO CREATE A PROTOTYPE TRAINER WILL BE PROPOSED.
