Abstract : The purpose of the study was to measure performance changes which may occur when Army personnel, wearing complete operational/combat flight clothing and equipment, fly a light observation helicopter during periods of high ambient temperature and humidity. Important relationships were found between physiological changes and crew station environment. An equation was developed to quantify a hypothetical relationship between performance, environment and physiological changes. (Author)
