Abstract:

To preserve a good level of vigilance and performance we have to respect our sleep wakefulness cycle. The sustained and continuous operations induce disturbances of this biological rhythm, such as sleep loss jet-lag...There is an antinomy between the physiological requirement and the operational requirement. To be able to continue the mission but also to preserve our security and the security of the crew we need an appropriate sleep-wakefulness management. This Lecture Series presents the physiological ergonomic and pharmacological possibilities to reach these goals.
