Field and laboratory confinement studies were reviewed to evaluate existing information and to identify areas where future research is needed. The studies reviewed deal with confining two or more people in a restricted space for a prolonged period of time particular attention was devoted to how such conditions degrade performance. Few of the studies bear on the Armys chief interest in confinement how men will perform during and after prolonged confinement in armored vehicles. The review concludes by recommending ways to make future studies of confinement more directly relevant to the Armys interest.
