Abstract
The purpose of this investigation was to test the components of the Soldier Tracking and Performance Measurement System (STPMS) against the statement of requirements as found in the Request for Proposal. Secondary aims of this investigation included gathering data that will allow potential users of the system to understand its capabilities and limitations, as well as allow efficient planning of both time and resources necessary to ensure efficient and productive use of the system for training and experimentation purposes. Data collection focused on the following functional requirements criteria:System Requirements, Soldier Requirements, Combat Identification, Umpire Requirements, Data Collection Requirements, Monitoring Requirements, and Performance Feedback Requirements. The investigation was performed utilizing 10 Infantry soldiers in LFCATC Meaford under controlled conditions. Outcomes of the investigation indicate that the System met or exceeded the vast majority of requirements as outlined in the Request for Proposal. Those requirements that were not met were a function of economies realized through extensive discussions with the manufacturer and the Scientific Authority. The report provides a detailed description of system components, comparisons of measured vs. reported soldier position data, an evaluation of performance feedback mechanisms and the results of extensive directed discussions following the participant’s use of the system in a controlled environment.
