For the Navy’s surface warfare community, sleep is a luxury not often afforded while on sea duty. The Navy’s standard 81-hour workweek means Sailors in the fleet often experience sleep problems serious enough to have researchers concerned that safety and performance on the job might be compromised. The human performance research of NPS Associate Professor Nita Shattuck and operations research student Lt. Matt Yokeley has caught the attention of surface warfare officers, even being featured in a recent issue of "Navy Times."
