Abstract
AS THE SOPHISTICATION OF HIGH TECHNOLOGY COMBAT VEHICLES INCREASES, THE HUMAN OPERATOR MAY BECOME THE WEAK LINK, PREVENTING MISSION ACCOMPLISHMENT DUE TO INCREASED WORKLOAD AND STRESS. TO ADDRESS THE OPERATOR PERFORMANCE ASPECTS OF DYNAMIC COMBAT VEHICLES, THE MILITARY SCIENTIST OR ENGINEER REQUIRES A USEABLE SOURCE DOCUMENT TO FACILITATETHE DEVELOPMENT OF TESTS OR EVALUATIONS OF MILITARY VEHICLES. THIS PROPOSAL SUGGESTS AN APPROACH THAT WOULD REVIEW THE SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE TO IDENTIFY THE MAJOR HUMAN PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT METHODS THAT HAVE BEEN USED TO ASSESS OPERATOR PERFORMANCE IN A DYNAMIC VEHICLE. THESE RESEARCH REPORTS WILL BE FURTHER EXAMINED TO DETERMINE THE APPLICABILITY OF EACH MAJOR APPROACH TO PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT IN MILITARY VEHICLES. THIS LITERATURE REVIEW AND CRITICAL EXAMINATION OF THE RESEARCH REPORTS WILL YIELD AN IMPORTANT BACKGROUND DOCUMENT THAT IS BOTH RELEVANT TO THE EVALUAITON OF HUMAN PERFORMANCE IN A DYNAMIC VEHICLE, AND IS STRUCTURED FOR READY USE BY MILITARY SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS.
