Abstract : The Patriot missile system, the most modern and automated of the Army's air defense artillery systems, protects U.S. and NATO assets from the high to medium altitude enemy air threat. This report describes a research study whose goal was to assess the performance of enlisted Patriot operators and to link that performance to the outcomes of the simulated air battles. The Patriot study was one of several Army-sponsored research efforts aimed at analyzing the relationship between personnel quality and Army Operational performance based on quantitative and objective performance tests.
