The proposed research is more operational than hypothesis driven. Previously validated techniques will be used to identify fitness thresholds for performance of a new set of mission-related tasks. The Specific Aim is to identify thresholds of muscle performance, below which task performance is impaired. A variety of muscle performance measurements will be evaluated; this allows flexibility in the eventual development of a readiness test since it is not yet known what muscle performance monitoring capability will be in future vehicles.
