Abstract : The Navy Science Assistance Program (NSAP) understands the importance and value of providing human factors support to solving Navy and Marine Corps operational problems. Since 1979, NSAP has fielded a human factors technical advisor position to provide human factors engineering support services to the major Navy and Marine Corps operational commands. Currently, the human factors technical advisor, or hufa, is supporting 19 Science and 8 Technical Advisors on a variety of tasks, projects, or questions involving some form of human factors service. In FY 91 over 30 requests for human factors support was received from the fleet and field. Several examples of the hufa's human factors support will be presented. Observations on what some of the future challenges facing the DoD human factors and scientific communities will also be addressed.
