The purpose of this effort is to evaluate unobtrusive measures of performance, relative to established measures (e.g. Cognition), and to provide guidelines for interpreting these ‘Next Gen’ measures. While reliable and valid objective (and subjective) measures are needed for the Bmed Risk to move from ‘red’ to ‘yellow’, future missions of extended duration will also have increasingly autonomous crews. Hence, providing measures which are unobtrusive and minimize the time burden to the crew, will provide a means through which changes in behavioral health and performance can be assessed. The intent is not to provide a measure through which crew are being monitored 24/7, but rather a measure which will cue the ground if downward trends persist.

This effort will contribute to gap closure by providing acceptable measures which will yield a set of mission acceptable thresholds of individual behavioral health and performance for exploration class missions.
