Abstract : The general goal of HumRRO research for the Department of the Army is to discover, develop, and apply human factors and social science principles and techniques to enhance the efficiency of both training and operational performance of military personnel. The objectives are to develop, for individuals and groups, (1) means for efficient acquisition of required military knowledges and skills, (2) procedures to insure retention of required knowledges and skills, and (3) ways to permit maximum utilization of acquired knowledges and skills in performing military duties. Ninety-five percent of HumRRO's program for FY 1968 is exploratory development and advanced development, divided into three categories of effort: Exploratory Studies, Work Units, and Technical Advisory Service. The remaining 5% is allocated to Basic Research. An Exploratory Study (ES) is an effort to evaluate the feasibility of engaging in a major research activity on a particular Army problem. In essence, such a study is a problem-defining activity in response to a military requirement. Exploratory Studies account for 9% of the FY 1968 Work Program. The major portion of the HumRRO program consists of the research efforts known as Work Units, which are usually initiated as a result of an Exploratory Study. Work Units are full-scale research projects designed to produce specific information or products aimed directly at an Army problem. They account for 80% of the total FY 1968 program.
