Abstract

Operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Bosnia reveal that soldiers are exposed to extreme, complex and sustained operations, crossing the limits of human capabilities. During these operations the operational readiness or status of the soldier is estimated by the commander based on subjective observations of the physical and mental capabilities of the soldier. This commander evaluation can be biased by personal experiences and commanders own physical and mental status.
