This document is the final report of a project to review the new Guidelines on the Preparation of a Statement of Operational Requirements (SOR) from a Human Systems Integration (HSI) perspective. The project was sponsored by the Defence Research and Development Branch (DRDB) using Armour Systems projects as an example. This report was developed to provide guidance for addressing the Human Systems Integration content requirements of DND SORs and to discuss the options for electronic distribution of HIS related information. In general, the inclusion of HIS related requirements in SOR's appears to be straight forward based on a systematic analysis of future systems, within the context of future scenarios and operational/support concepts. However, it will take time for such analysis to become practiced and routine throughout all DND environments. It is recommended that the DRDB community support any efforts to ensure that HSI is included in SOR's over the next several years and that early samples be provided as examples for other projects to learn from. In addition, it is recommended that the feedback on SOR structures and content related to HSI issues outlined in this report be integrated into future versions of the SOR template and associated guidelines.
