Abstract:

The project is concerned with the assessment of human performance and recovery capabilities under relatively long duration conditions two hours or more. Varying workrest schedules and environments are among the variables manipulated, and the results relate to the doctrine of continuous operations. During this reporting period, a report was prepared describing the results of a study of 8 and 16 hours of continuous work experiments were continued to ascertain the effects of methyl scoppolmine on animal response decrements a report was begun on the relation between circadian rhythms and performance on a physical loading task and research continued on heat stress limits for sedentary operations. Three papers were presented at meetings, three published, three accepted for publication, and four were submitted. This progress report contains a list of 27 topics of potential military relevance derived from the studies conducted from 1968 to the present. Author
