This study examined injury and physical fitness outcomes in Basic Combat Training (BCT) during implementation of Physical Readiness Training (PRT). PRT is the U.S. Army's emerging physical fitness training program. An experimental group (EG, n = 1284), which implemented the PRT program, was compared to a control group (CG, n = 1296), which used a(More)
In 1994, the leadership 1 of the US Biometric Consortium asked a series of questions to the automated human recognition (" biometrics ") community revolving around the issues of repeatability and reproducibility of measurements in performance testing. Although we have made significant progress in our understanding, these issues have not been totally(More)
New developments in applied mathematics and computing are reviewed to identify the research that will be needed to meet future challenges within the National Measurement System. Topics under review include simulation, modelling over more than one length scale, molecular modelling, distributed computing, parallel coordinate systems, risk and uncertainty, and(More)
