Abstract:

This annotated bibliography presents a body of research and analyses conducted by the Army Research Institute at Fort Benning, Georgia, between 1998 and 2009 on the Land Warrior LW system and the Ground Soldier System GSS. These Soldier systems include a wearable computer, a global positioning system that tracks the location of everyone within the system, a helmet-mounted display, and a radio, all linked to a network. From 1998 to 2009, the Army Research Institute ARI at Fort Benning conducted training research, analyses, and assessments that provided input to Army decisions regarding equipping and fielding the LW system and the GSS. The efforts covered the training of Soldiers to operate and employ the LW system during the period from 1998 to 2006. The GSS analyses followed the Land Warrior work. Much additional ARI training research was stimulated by the training issues and questions surrounding Soldier systems with a wearable computer, such as the LW system and GSS. The annotated bibliography summarizes this body of work and documents its impact. Some references in the annotated bibliography are published ARI reports others are special reports submitted to the TRADOC Capabilities Manager TCM-Soldier, Project Manager PM Land WarriorSoldier, andor U.S. Army Infantry School USAIS. Collectively, they provide a picture of LW training and system changes since 1998, summarize additional ARI research generated by training issues and questions associated with Soldier systems such as LW and GSS, and summarize the short-term and long-term impacts of the research.
