The aim of the investigation is to assess a Comprehensive Police Fatigue Management Program for flight mission controllers. The goals of this program are to reduce the adverse consequences of fatigue on the mission controllers’ alertness, performance, health, and safety. The overall goals include developing an online education training module & an efficient sleep disorders screening, as well as evaluate the acceptability, feasibility and efficacy of a shorter wavelength photic countermeasure and an exercise protocol, during operational night shifts. The results will inform work-hour policies and guidelines that can be implemented to improve the alertness, performance, health, and safety of mission controllers.

This task has been conducted collaboratively with the Mission Operations Directorate.
