Abstract:

A study was conducted at the USAF Instrument Flight Center to test an augment assembly of measures for assessing the relative merits of various flight instrumentation systems. The USAF School of Aerospace Medicine SAM stress battery was included. Although the study was not designed so as to permit an optimized evaluation of the SAM stress battery, the following results were noted anticipatory stress, mild flight stress, and no habituation across missions. The SAM battery appears to be a useful addition to the flight instrumentation research program. Author
