This study involved over-the-road testing of a set of four fatigue management technologies (FMT) in trucking operations in Canada and the United States. Technologies bundled into a single intervention came from four domains of fatigue management: 1) one that provided objective information on driver sleep need; 2) one that provided objective information on… (More)
Network-centric warfare's (NCW) information-rich systems involving sophisticated sensors, tracking systems, smart weapons, and enhanced digital communications threaten to overload combatants with voluminous amounts of data. It is unclear whether warfighters will perceive such extensive data as actionable information to which they will respond accurately in… (More)
Jet lag and shift lag have similar physiological consequences, but shift lag is a more complex problem. The most severe desynchronization may be experienced by airline personnel making transmeridian flights. Coping strategies for eastward and westward travelers and for shiftworkers are recommended, as are interventions involving melatonin.
Civilian emergency response personnel who assist at chemical or biological disaster scenes are likely to be novices at functioning in chemical-biological (C-B) protective clothing (CBC) meant for use on contaminated battlefields. Such teams must be aware that CBC imposes numerous physiological, psychophysiological, and biomechanical effects on performance,… (More)
Two automatic navigation systems, a Doppler radar system and a projected map system, and a hand-held map were examined for their effects on copilot/navigator workload and performance. The automatic navigation systems reduced the number of navigation errors and the size of deviations from intended tract. The Doppler system reduced the time devoted to… (More)
