74th DoD HFE Technical Advisory Group
Date: July 20-24, 2020
Location: Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division (NSWCPHD), VADM Robert L. Walters Engineering Center, 4363 Missile Way, Bldg. 1388, Oxnard, California, 93035
Theme: “Resilience 2020: Are we ready?” The demanding nature of continuous operations and ever-changing threat vectors require military and civilian personnel to demonstrate optimal cognitive and physical performance in the face of challenging situations. Factors such as environmental stressors, physiology, fatigue, resources, culture, leadership, and communications affect human physical, mental, and emotional states. These impacts may materialize and even compound in terms of reduced readiness and resilience of our military forces and civilian workforce. The focus of TAG 74 is to apply an interdisciplinary approach to the exploration of human centric factors, challenges, and solutions to whole system resilience as a major enabler of mission readiness and a more lethal force. This year’s DoD HFE TAG will provide opportunity to interact with the forward leaning In-Service Engineering Agent (ISEA) of the Future Team who is leading a collaborative approach to research, development, and application of advanced technologies for engineering, test, maintenance, and logistics support to fielded equipment. This interaction will foster government, academic, and industry HFE practitioners’ cognizance of the effort and opportunities to align efforts to address cross service, human performance challenges and solutions which promote operational readiness and resilience. In addition to paper/poster sessions, the Mixed Reality SubTAG is soliciting submissions for innovative technology hands-on demonstrations. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to learn, leverage, and share how HFE is supporting effective integration of emergent technologies into defense systems. Space will be limited, if you are interested in securing a slot to showcase your product please contact Marianne Paulsen at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Theme: “Looking to the Future:
Charting the Road Ahead” The role and prominence of Human Factors in the Department of Defense and other US Government agencies continues to grow as future technology solutions will provide greater capability while requiring natural, intuitive interaction techniques. Balancing these two seemingly contradictory goals requires forethought and strategic planning in order to obtain the desired results. Enabling a system operator to perform complex tasks in demanding situations does not happen by accident. Designing for future technologies that do not yet exist, the operation and integration of which can’t be fully realized for months, years or even decades to come, necessitates the use of roadmaps to chart the way forward. The focus of this DoD HFE TAG is to identify the challenges associated with planning for future technology solutions, inspire collaboration amongst agencies with similar challenges and goals, and to share lessons learned within and across related disciplines.
