The CAMI is the medical certification, research, education, and occupational health wing of the FAAs OAM. The Institutes mission has not changed over the years its only purpose is to further aviation safety. At CAMI, researchers study the factors that influence human performance in the aviation environment, find ways to understand them, and communicate that understanding to the aviation community. Communicating research findings to the public is achieved in several ways published reports in professional journals and newsletters, proceedings reports, and formal technical reports. OAM Reports is the major part of the communications effort. Published continuously since 1961, these reports are the distillation of FAA aeromedical research efforts in aviation safety. Through 2004, CAMI has published 997 reports on a wide range of subjects, from Angular Acceleration to Workload Effects on Complex Performance. The index lists all FAA aerospace medicine technical reports published from 1961 through 2004 in three ways chronologically, alphabetically by author, and alphabetically by subject. A foreword describes the indexs sections and explains how to obtain copies of published OAM technical reports.
