Abstract
In this review, an attempt is made to find answers to four questions. 1. What are the energy costs of typical combat engineer tasks? 2. Can these tasks be performed without sleep for periods up to 48 hours and at what physiological cost? 3. What is the effect of sustained operations on the work output (productivity) of combat engineers? 4. Are combat engineers physically prepared to meet the physical demands of sustained operations?
