Pagination or Media Count:
The demands of many military occupations have the potential for exceeding the capacity of the human to process information, especially during times of great stress, such as those faced by combat system operators. The capacity of the human to perceive, integrate, remember, and use information may be challenged when the individual is flying aircraft, monitoring radar and sonar displays, or operating electronic warfare systems. Exceeding the capacity of the human operator in such situations may impair decision-making and could result in costly tactical errors. This report, concerned with use of neuroelectric signals to predict the decision-making performance of combat system operators, provides detailed analyses of the neuroelectric changes that occur as workload increases in combat system simulation.
