Abstract : This bibliography presents the results of a literature review to provide background information for the study "Performance-based Occupational Strength Testing for Candidate Navy Pilots/Naval Flight Officers." The purpose of this work is to develop an occupational strength test battery to establish gender-neutral standards in naval aviation selection. This research, partially Funded by the Defense Women's Health Research Program, was prompted by a congressional decision to allow smaller statured individuals entry into military aviation. The long-range objective of this project is to test and identify individuals capable of meeting specific strength requirements to safely operate naval aircraft. The cited publications cover the time period from 1972 through October 1994. The literature search was conducted using the following databases: Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC), Medline, and PsychLit. The abstracts included in this bibliography are in original form. An index organized by subject matter is provided.
