Abstract: The research programs summarized in this report describe efforts proposed by scientists and engineers in the U.S. Army Research Laboratory's (ARL) Human Research and Engineering Directorate that support further understanding of Soldier performance and the interactions between Soldiers and technologies. This report focuses on the 6.2 funding for the Soldier performance and Soldier-machine interaction research funded under the R2A designator PE62716AH70 (Human Factors Engineering) and comprises four areas of research: (1) Information Processing for Collaboration and Decision Making, (2) Human Performance Modeling/Improved Man-Machine Interfaces, (3) Human-Robotic Interaction, and (4) Soldier-focused Neurotechnologies. Summaries for each area include a brief description of the research, types of experiments, tests, and demonstrations employed, methods employed, value of simulation space versus real space, and collaborations and related work.
