Abstract
This proposal offers a detailed work plan to conduct the research neces¬sary to determine whether a correlation exists between soldiers and Marines surviving their first few firefights and long-term survival in a combat environment. If sufficient evidence is found to establish a correlation, the research will identify the factors and/or behaviors responsible for individual survival while under fire and also assess the feasibility of developing pre-combat training to convey the lessons derived from study results. Ana¬capa Sciences, Inc., has assem¬bled a uniquely qualified team of behavioral scientists, program¬mers, and subject matter experts to perform this important research project.
