Psychological resilience is considered an essential aspect for building and maintaining operational readiness. To improve psychological resilience, appropriate tools are needed which are able to accurately measure psychological readiness. The Naval Center for Combat & Operational Stress Control (NCCOSC) developed the Servicemember Evaluation Tool (SET), a self-report battery that measures psychological resilience and well-being across several domains. We focused on crewmembers working on Unites States Navy ships while underway for a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the SET instrument. This effort included the utility of SET for data collection in the field, its psychometric properties, and the association between SET and other variables of interest, e.g., demographics, sleep attributes, and watchbill types. Data from 401 Sailors serving on four ships were collected during two ~1-week periods, at the beginning and close to the end of deployment. We concluded that although an instrument like the SET is a muchneeded instrument to assess psychological resilience in active duty service members, the instrument in its current form should be revised in order to refine its focus, improve its psychometric properties and reduce potential sources of bias. Once these tasks are accomplished, a new data collection effort on multiple naval vessels could be used to reassess its utility.
