Abstract : The volume contains the text, discussion and technical evaluation of ten papers presented at the AGARD Aerospace Medical Panel's Specialist meeting. The meeting was convened in response to a request from the Military Committee of NATO for advice on the influence of work and rest schedules on the operational efficiency of personnel concerned with flight operations. The papers presented fell into three main categories: (a) laboratory investigations of normal and abnormal work/rest schedules, (b) in-flight studies of aircrew operating long-haul transports, (c) duty cycles in air traffic control tasks. Specific recommendations made during the meeting will be incorporated in a comprehensive report to be prepared by an ad hoc Working Group. (Author)
