Abstract : A study was made of human factors affecting operations of U.S. Navy destroyers. Shipboard duties were analyzed to determine factors relevant to job performance. Topics included vigilance and motivation; search techniques; sensor optimization; man's total environment (factors such as fatigue, stress, lighting, temperature, noise, medication, and smoking); group and individual psychological needs; human engineering requirements; and typical performance effectiveness criteria.
