Abstract : The objective of this study was to review and select a taxonomy appropriate for the classification of Army helicopter crews tasks. The utility of such a taxonomy is that it provides a means for predicting performance of personnel on tasks which are similar to those already measured. This ability to generalize across tasks can save time and money in the process of predicting performance in a variety of jobs across numerous weapon systems. The study began with helicopter mission analysis followed by the identification of mission segments characterized by high operator workload. from these segments, tasks were defined and then classified. Keywords: Task analysis, Radiation effects, task taxonomy, Mission analysis, Helicopter tasks, Human performance.
