The Army is building a ‘dashboard’ to measure human performance | Army Times

Must Read

Army researchers are developing a dashboard that displays unit health status and fatality numbers. 

The Combat Capabilities Development Command of the Army has been working on a soldier/squad “dashboard” that would put all of this information in a consumable format and at the leader’s fingertips. A simple spreadsheet may inform a unit commander of who is healthy, who has completed the required training, and who is combat-ready. Some troops have undergone laboratory shock tests to see how they respond to high-stress levels. However, squads and platoons were monitored outside the laboratory during field drills. The objective is to develop a prediction system that incorporates decades of study. 

This monitoring and data library should give commanders a credible criterion for determining whether to rotate a unit. Using a variety of measures, sensors, monitoring, and feedback, scientists determine what makes a soldier perform. In April, further field trials were conducted with units doing live fires on a range and sleep tests. In June, the team anticipates putting another batch of troops through a 72-hour field training exercise.
