Abstract : This document is an annual progress report covering the period 5 Dec 94 to 1 Aug. 95. The research effort includes the study of human performance under sustained acceleration after fatigue (one night's sleep loss) and G-layoff of up to four weeks. Fifteen male and fifteen women are participating. Measures of performance include closed-loop flight of the Dynamic Environment Simulator up to 9 Gz, altitude awareness, auditory speech choice reaction time testing, and monitoring an instrument panel. Other relevant measures being performed include C adaptation response, anthropmetry, strength, and cardiac function.
