Abstract:

This thesis culminates in a management plan for determining the effects of combat stress on the man-machine interface of complex information display systems. The objective is to provide to the reader both background information detailing the historical development of military attitudes towards combat stress and a survey of the physiological and psychological factors which influence the resolution of this problem. Current research in these areas is discussed with emphasis on research which strongly supports the problems resolution. The management plan cites those agencies who have a specific background, expertise and capability of accomplishing portions of the research. For concepts requiring further study, individuals within established institutions who are currently addressing these areas are suggested. An overall program coordinator is recommended. In conclusion, recommendations for implementation of changes in the areas of training and acquisition are cited.
