Abstract:

The dramatic introduction of technology onto the battlefield has intensified in recent years and is expected to continue at an accelerated rate. This results in increased human performance demands. Human performance is physiologically limited in terms of the rate at which a human can process information and physically perform tasks. Though there is little that can be done about the humans physiological limitations, human performance capabilities can be improved in other ways. Human performance capabilities of Army personnel can best be improved by either raising enlistment standards e.g., education, aptitude andor providing more and better training. Enlistment standards are expected to remain relatively constant during the foreseeable future. Though Army training has improved and will continue to do so, the training environment is burdened with ever increasing demands to a large extent attributable to the proliferation of technology on the battlefield while simultaneously experiencing diminishing resources e.g., time and money. As a result, human performance capabilities in the Army are also expected to remain relatively constant.
