Abstract:

This report describes the four steps used to determine the best equipment to use for collecting soldier performance data. Special attention was paid to field data collection, where operational requirements often restrict the data collection capability. The four steps involved a conducting structured interviews with experienced research persons, b analyzing questionnaires mailed to researchers, c preparing a list of the data collection instrumentation identified, and d locating sources for the equipment items and doing trade-off analyses to identify the most cost-effective supplier. The equipment needed fell into six classes a audio, b video, c support and selected supplementary, d environment d weather, e work space, and f psychological and physiological. This report does not include the equipment specification, source, and cost data because such data will become obsolete as models and prices change.
