Abstract : Using the Improved Performance Research Integration Tool (IMPRINT), the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Human Research and Engineering Directorate, (HRED) analysts developed a model to represent the tasks performed by each member of the Abrams version 2 with System Enhancement Package (V2 SEP) crew. They then used this model to predict the mental workload of the crew and its impacts on the performance of the crew of the Abrams V2 SEP. The phase I analysis and its workload predictions will serve as a baseline for a phase II analysis. The phase II analysis will predict the impact of specific additional technologies added to the Abrams on Soldier workload and performance.
