Published by Paul D Carrier
The scope of the study was limited to design of hand-held equipment, design
of man-portable crew-served equipment, and design of loads, load-carrying devices and techniques. Primary interest was in the effects of these factors upon
combat performance, but measures of physiological activity have been covered
to a limited extent.
Information sources included reports of laboratory research, field test and
evaluation reports, training studies, Army staff studies and conference reports,
opinions of combat officers and field personnel, reported observations of other
cultural groups, and miscellaneous published articles. Over 343 literature
sources were examined, and 62 of those were selected for more intensive study and abstractions of data.
