This annual report for the Defense Womens Health Research Program presents the project status on the sustained operations study comparing female and male soldier performance. An overview of previous sustained operations research and a description of the studys research methodology and measures are given. Soldiers with combat support MOSs will undergo 48 hours of sustained operations in a field environment. During the study period, soldiers will complete cognitive, psychological, and physiological testing along with soldier-relevant performance modules involving record fire, road marches, common task testing, and a computer work environment. Sustained operations research has typically focused on male soldiers with combat arms MOSs. This study augments the present sustained operations database by thoroughly evaluating the performance of female and male combat support soldiers.
