Trust in leadership is essential in high-risk work-environments such as the military. Without a willingness to be vulnerable to the leader’s directives, soldiers may lose their focus and become less prepared to respond to operational demands. The present research examined how trust in different hierarchical leaders affects soldiers’ morale,...

Both bio- and neurofeedback (training) protocols are hypothesized to be beneficial in the management of arousal states and psychological recuperation after aversive and potentially traumatic experiences. As military deployments in theatres like Iraq or Afghanistan imply an significant risk for potentially traumatic experiences and stress related...

This paper presents a usage-centered evaluation method to assess the capabilities of a particular Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) for establishing the operational goals. The method includes a test battery consisting of basic tasks (e.g., slalom, funnel driving, object detection). Tests can be of different levels of abstraction, and be performed in...

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Human Factors and Medicine Panel has approved the formation of a study group, HFM-128, on human behavior representation (HBR) in constructive simulation. The differentiating focus of this working group is the translation of scientific HBR concepts into a combined "how-to" and "when-to" guide for...

Psychological resilience is seen as a factor influencing soldiers’ performance, mental health, and long-term adaptation after deployment. Factors related to unit’s morale as evaluated by the Netherlands Morale Instrument were compared to soldiers mental health evaluation six months after return from deployment to Afghanistan. For this study the...

This paper describes the development of a new approach to risk analysis applied to the investigation of how inserting new technologies in systems may induce positive and negative human impacts. The current approach employed by the UK Ministry of Defence, and embodied in the Early Human Factors Analysis, involves the identification of a series of...

The topic described in this abstract directly relates to the aim of the HFM to share national experience and evidenced-based approaches on interventions that build resilience. The presentation will be relevant for military professionals as well as research scientists. Attrition within initial training of the Royal Netherlands Navy in Den Helder...

Developing good team skills usually involves exercises with all team members playing their role. This approach is costly and has organizational and educational drawbacks. For the Netherlands army, we developed a more efficient and flexible approach by setting training in virtual environments, and using intelligent software agents to play the...

Message dissemination is often an important part of many provincial reconstruction efforts. This dissemination is affected by many factors that may only be partly known, such as the impact of the information, the social network structure, socio-cultural factors that affect the information dissemination, and at what point the information looses...

Motivation – Complex design specifications must be partitioned in manageable pieces to be able to evaluate them in separate experiments. No methodology exists yet to deal with this task. Research approach – Practical experience in Situated Cognitive Engineering and the Mission Execution Crew Assistant is combined with a theoretical perspective...

The Issue: According to the Netherlands Ministry of Defence (Defence Plan 2007-2016) “Modern war fighting concepts are not aimed at disrupting a Nation in a most destructive manner, but through threats and discouragements and if necessary proportional and precise force to inhibit the desire and capability of opponents to fight. The local...

NATO Task Group 128 identifies that behaviour in military simulations is often too mechanistic in nature. In this paper we will argue that behaviour in simulations can be improved if the two central aspects of behaviour modelling, i.e. action selection and performance modelling, are not addressed as separate issues, but as interacting instead....

In an attempt to define a generic way to include human factors in a simulation of military operations HFM 128 suggested to break the causal chain between human factors as input and operational outcome into three components: a) human factors science based models to calculate state variables of the human, b) Performance Shaping Functions (PSF) to...
