Abstract:

The objective of this work was the determination of physiological estimators of stress during task performance, recognition of physiological status in operators of weapon systems and the understanding of the mechanisms relating to stresses encountered under operational conditions. The data cover a wide range of human performance measures and the physiological mechanisms which underlie these measures. The studies included levels of performance after sleep interruptions human operator performance capability following varying periods of exposure to a range of angles of a simulated cockpit seat effects of weak environmental electromagnetic fields on calcium ion binding in cerebral tissue development of a biomedical monitoring system with capability for command transmission over limited bandwidths channels evaluation of operational potential of remote medical monitoring by cryomagnetometry and other techniques for no-contact monitoring and biomedical sensing in performing subjects.
