This paper describes a study examining the effects of fatigue on team decision-making performance in a command and control context. Ten three-person teams participated in an investigation of sleep deprivation on physiological state, cognitive function, and simulation-based performance. Teams participated in the study from 630 pm through 1030 am the next morning. In this report, we describe preliminary analyses, focused on effects of sleep loss. Despite the small number of teams, significant results were found with regard to time, scenario, oral temperature, and math total points.
