Abstract: The Human Research and Engineering Directorate of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory conducted a human factors evaluation (HFE) of the Land Warrior system as part of the Land Warrior Safety Test conducted by Aberdeen Test Center at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, in March 2002. The primary objective was to identify human factors issues associated with the Land Warrior system. Five assessments were conducted as part of the HFE: glove compatibility, shooting performance, weapons compatibility, mobility and portability, and range of motion. Several issues were identified, and recommendations to alleviate the potential problems and increase overall system effectiveness are discussed.
