Abstract : The report presents brief summaries of research activities under six major headings: (a) studies of sustained performance, (b) psychophysiological and biomedical correlates, (c) personality, social, and subjective correlates, (d) technical studies and supporting laboratory research, (e) methodological and theoretical formulations, and (f) liaison activities. Major accomplishments include the completion of an interim technical report of the first study of the effects of sleep-loss and continuous work on sustained split-shift performance. Additional efforts were directed toward the interfacing of a newly acquired Digital Equipment Corporation PDP-12A Experimental Control System (ECS) with the multiple-task performance battery. The software necessary for the operation of this system was completed during the past year. (Author)
