Abstract : It is the purpose of this paper to introduce to potential users a new generation of instrumentation designed to acquire and record virtually any information which can be measured electronically. The TNFS3 instrumentation was designed primarily to resolve issues regarding physical security, remote sensing devices, security force response times, etc. However, it is a powerful data acquisition tool that can be used by the behavioral science community to collect human physiology data, under realistic environments and with the participants, and the resulting data, unaffected by heavy or nontransparent instrumentation. The modular hardware and software structure allows the incorporation of new sensors and processing modules with not impact on the baseline instrumentation capability. Additions such as EEG, EKG, blood pressure, and body resistivity can and will be added as their requirements surface. Security force personnel can be tested under controlled conditions and their performance level can be evaluated versus the following: Physical Condition; Intelligence Quotient; Degree of Training Received; Fatigue; Boredom; and External Environment.
