The book will appeal to an international multidisciplinary audience interested in the design and development of systems for military use, including defense contractors, program management offices, human factors engineers, human system integrators, system engineers, and computer scientists. This chapter explores the role of applied human factors in military load carriage equipment development, as a part of a soldier system, and outlines the basic human factor principles of load carriage, some of the current issues, the use of systematic development approaches and the relevant human systems advice by load carriage equipment sub-component. Human Factors efforts are required in at least five of the six major phases of system development: System Planning; Predesign; Detail Design; Production; Test and Evaluation; and Operations. Each phase introduces behavioural questions that must be answered if the system is to be designed by: The emergent properties of the military scenario relate to the degree of system reconfigurability, systems level Situational Awareness (SA), team-working and the role of mediating technology.

Economic Development and Military Effectiveness MICHAEL BECKLEY recent studies claim that democracy, Western culture, high levels of human capital, and amicable civil-military relations enhance military effectiveness. If correlations found between these political and social factors and military effectiveness are spurious.

Garcia, Aug , Blackwell Publishers edition, Paperback. Designing Soldier Systems: Current Issues in Human Factors 1st Edition. John Martin, Laurel Allender, Pamela Savage-Knepshield Ma This book focuses on contemporary human factors issues within the design of soldier systems and describes how they are currently being investigated and addressed by the U.S. Army to enhance soldier performance and effectiveness. 2 Human factors Human factors approaches gained popularity in health care in the s, but most work has focused on hospital settings. Primary care would benefit from using human factors approaches due to the complexity of primary care, the multiple elements in the system and the coordinating role that primary care plays. Human Factors Issues in Combat Identification is intended for the larger human factors community within academia, the military and other organizations that work with the military such as government contractors and commercial developers as well as others interested in combat identification issues including military personnel and policy by:
