Abstract:

For this report, a literature review was conducted to assess the knowledge of the effects of fatigue and related stressors on the performance of military personnel engaged in diverse military tasks. The objective was to determine whether there are sufficient objective, quantifiable data on the effects and time-course of fatigue to justify incorporation into combat models. Both mental and physical fatigue were considered. More than 500 articles, reports, and books were reviewed for this effort. A summary table of the results of sleep deprivation studies was organized. Prediction equations for physical activity are discussed.
