Abstract:

The field study investigated an artillery crews posture sequence under simulated artillery fire. The results relate their posture e.g., standing or prone to time after the initial warning. A method of analyzing the crews exposed area is presented. Conclusions If troops have even a few seconds of warning, they can improve their defensive postures greatly. When prepared foxholes are available, defensive posture will be quite different with four seconds warning than with two seconds warning. Author
