Abstract:

One hundred twenty-five supervisors in four types of U.S. Army combat systems estimated the degree of degradation of military tasks for 30 descriptive symptom complexes associated with various radiation exposures. Results indicated that a the relative order of symptom effects were highly consistent across positions and the types of systems, b performances were expected to be deleteriously affected under most illness conditions, even mild ones, but incapacitation was not anticipated until illness conditions became quite severe, and c the most important factors in estimating performances were Fluid Loss and FatigabilityWeakness.
