Abstract : The U.S. Air Force-developed adaptation of the Multi-Attribute Task Battery, known as AF-MATB, was released in 2010 and has been widely used by both military and civilian researchers interested in assessing human performance in a controlled multitask environment. The most recent release of AF-MATB contains numerous improvements and additions, including but not limited to serial and digital port event triggering for real-time task state synchronization and new task modes including those based on seminal published works (e.g. Molloy & Parasuraman, 1996). This report serves as the manual for the updated software package and provides researchers with extensive documentation on how to configure and use, as well as analyze data generated by, the software.
