Abstract : This report describes the instrumentation used for gathering and recording data for the 1962 USAF SAM-MATS, Fatigue Study at Dover AFB, Del. Six biomedical measures and six performance measures were recorded continuously while 4 pilots accomplished an aircraft simulator 'flight' of 24 hours each. The biomedical monitoring instrumentation included EEG, ECG, respiration, skin temperature, BSR, and GSR. A 6-channel personalized biomedical radio telemetry system was used to transmit these measures. Continuously recorded performance measures included three pilot-control functions and three aircraft instrument readings. The circuitry and functions of the personalized telemetry system are detailed, including technics developed to resolve all major problems encountered. Most of the recorded data were suitable for visual pattern analysis. (Author)
