Abstract:

Research involving sleep and fatigue in military operations has been conducted for many years. Indeed, following nearly every major military engagement or conflict, reports are published which detail the effects of sleep deprivation on human performance. Unfortunately, many of these reports never make it to the scientific literature, and are published instead as technical reports. Following an extensive search of all available data sources including open scientific journals and electronic resources e.g., military, psychological, medical, pharmacological, and biomedical journals or electronic resources, the Defense Technical Information Center DTIC, and other government information sources, this annotated bibliography represents an effort to put together a comprehensive, although not exhaustive, description of all such studies that were conducted between the years 1983 and 2006. The bibliography covers research involving military personnel in operational environments including combat, observations during military exercises, findings on fatigue in laboratory settings, including with simulated military tasks, findings on fatigue in simulations, and findings on sustained SUSOPS and continuous operations CONOPS. When available and deemed appropriate, the original abstracts from the citations were used. If no abstract was available from the original work, the authors developed one.
