Abstract : Soldier volunteers were studied over four days of training at Ft. Benning, Georgia, using new ambulatory monitors. This report focuses on the 20 km road march performed on the first day. Study objectives: (a) define baseline requirements for physiological monitoring of individual soldiers for force management, (b) use prototype ambulatory monitoring systems to record the physiological responses of soldiers during field training, and (c) address operational issues and criteria raised in the original Dismounted Battlespace Battle Lab CEP proposal.
