Abstract:

A major challenge exists today, and will exist to a far greater extent in the future, for the Army to obtain optimal performance from its human resources. The potential payoffs from emerging human technologies reside in enhanced selection and MOS designation, initial training and skill retention, unit training and cohesion, job effectiveness, command climate and unit atmosphere, quality of leadership, physical fitness and soldier-machine interface. It is therefore concluded that the Army should continue to evaluate and test, where practical results have a high probability, an array of human technologies. To do so, the Army needs to organize and integrate the process of exploring, evaluating, testing and adapting such technologies. Finally, exercise caution in these efforts remembering to allow room for freshness and innovation while simultaneously maintaining a solid scientific footing for introduction of the results of the RDTE programs.
