Abstract
THE ARMY IS DEDICATED TO UPGRADING ITS VEHICLES TO INCLUDE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGICAL SYSTEMS FOR PERFORMING SOPHISTICATED MISSIONS. THE OPERATORS OF THESE VEHICLES MAY, IN NBC ENVIRONMENTS, BE TEMPORARILY RENDERED INCAPABLE OF MISSION CONTINUATION. UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES, TO AVOID LOSS OF EQUIPMENT AND PERSONNEL TO THE ENEMY, THE ARMY WANTS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF MONITORING/EVALUATING THE OPERATOR'S PHYSIOLOGICAL AND BEHAVIORAL FUNCTIONING TO DETECT OPERATORINABILITY TO CONTINUE THE MISSIONS, THEN TRANSFER CONTROL TO THE VEHICLE'S AUTOMATIC GUIDANCE AND CONTROL SYSTEM. IN SUPPORT OF THIS FEASIBILITY STUDY (PHASE 1), MACAULAY-BROWN, INC. PROPOSES TO PERFORM A TASK ANALYSIS ON A CANDIDATE MISSION AND VEHICLE FOR PERFORMANCE PARAMETERS, TO CONDUCT A LITERATURE SEARCH TO DETERMINE PHYSIOLOGICAL INDICATORS OF FUNCTIONALITY, AND TO CONDUCT A SURVEY AMONG LEADING MANUFACTURERS OF EQUIPMENT USED TO MEASURE PHYSIOLOGICAL RESPONSES. ANALYSIS OF THE MISSION AND ENVIRONMENTAL/OPERATING CONDITIONS WILL IDENTIFY THOSE ELEMENTS WHICH MUST BE ADDRESSED IN A DATA BANK FOR APPROPRIATE DECISION-MAKING FOR TRANSFERENCE OF FLIGHT CONTROL TO THE SYSTEM
