Abstract:

The report covers the effects of extended mission lengths on the performance of airborne command and control teams, wherein complex cognitive components consisting primarily of information collection, interpretation, and communication constitute the bulk of the workload. The survey centers on investigating general categories of performance-related factors, such as overall fatigue, rather than specific task performances such as long-term memory, sensory motor reaction time, or information processing.
