Abstract
Sailors’ work, rest schedules and fatigue were collected onboard of the Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship (HMCS) Calgary during the 10-day Exercise Trident Fury 2015 for supporting the validation of sleep and fatigue prediction algorithms to be implemented in naval crewing analysis software, the Simulation for Crew Optimization and Risk Evaluation (SCORE). This report summarises the data analysis that was focused on the distribution of sailors’ daily times on various on-duty and off-duty activities, as well as the fluctuation of their fatigue throughout the exercise. The results identified distinctively different patterns of sleep for 1-in-2, 1-in-3 watch-standers and non-watch standers. Averaged across participants from all five ship departments, a moderate level of fatigue was observed during the exercise. Results from this analysis provide a benchmark for validating the sleep and fatigue prediction algorithms.
