Abstract

This paper will present the progress in developing a concept and a demonstrator system for the assessment of fatigue, acute stress and combat/cognitive readiness in military domain. A battle-tank crew’s acute stress is measured with electrocardiography recordings of heart rate/heart rate variability. Cognitive performance is measured with a battery of cognitive tests, and task performance is estimated by soldiers’ self-ratings, trainers’ evaluations and objective measures from simulator data. The project consists of several test sessions in which cognitive and physiological indices of stress are measured while military conscripts perform battle-tank exercises both in simulator and field settings. The effect of task difficulty, sleep deprivation and operator role on performance are investigated. Different versions of the demonstrator system are also evaluated. The project results will be primarily used for the development of a bio-signal monitoring system, evaluation of transfer of simulator training to real-life exercises and improvement of military aptitude testing.
