The discipline of human factors and ergonomics emerged as a direct result of problems encountered in military systems during World War II. Advances in technology (e.g., radar and sonar) created new capabilities and opportunities; it also created the potential for new kinds of failures (some subtle, some spectacular). Military contexts continue to be a proving ground for technological innovation. For example, a wide variety of new forms of data have become available for today’s military decision makers (e.g., fuel and ammunition levels in individual vehicles, sensor data, sattelite and UAV imagery, etc.). Similarly, advances in graphical display and interface technology (e.g., high-resolution, bit-mapped screens) provide new options in the presentation of these data. Together, these new technological advances provide the potential to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of military operations.
