In order to predict and optimize human performance under reduced manpower conditions, it is helpful to model aspects of physical and cognitive performance under varied conditions, highlighting tradeoffs between task time and accuracy, cost, schedule, hardware/software, and human capabilities/limitations). However, current naval human performance models such as Total Crew Model and IMPRINT have yet to be validated, and are limited in terms of fidelity and sensitivity to environmental stressors/variables. In order to support validation of such models, data must be collected within operational scenarios and conditions, and ideally would be collected and analyzed via automated methods using unobtrusive sensors and validated metrics of cognitive and physical performance characteristics. An unobtrusive, digital sensor suite with automated analysis capabilities could support integration of physical, cognitive, and environmental metrics within an operational setting to provide real-time tracking and prediction of human performance, as well as mitigation of performance degradation. The proposed STTR effort seeks to design, develop, and validate a Portable Automated Sensor Suite for Performance and Operational Readiness Tracking (PASSPORT) technology to enable unobtrusive, real-time capture, synchronization, and analysis of environmental, physiological, physical, and subjective measures associated with both physical and cognitive fatigue within operational task environments.
