Abstract:

This research documents the collection, organization, and analysis of MANPRINT-related data from the 1985 Sgt York Follow-On Evaluation I. In 1985, an extensive follow on evaluation was conducted of the Sgt York system. Due to the use of an automated digital data bus, A large quantity of objective system and subsystem data was recorded. Included in these data was a substantial amount of previously uninvestigated individual and crew performance data. The data yielded findings on many issues relevant to the design of FAADS. The report provides suggestions on applying the performance data to future soldier-system performance models. Such models can be remarkably helpful in making decisions about future FAADS. Recommendations are also given on how to improve future follow-on evaluations. Keywords Combat
