The group was formed within the U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM) and was eventually part of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). This historical review uses an annotated bibliography format to summarize the work of that group from its founding in about 1960 through its closing in 2009. Also included are summaries of the genealogy of the group, the careers of the two principal scientists who led the group, Bryce O. Hartman and William F. Storm, brief biographies of scientists who influenced the group’s research foci, the devices and techniques used by the group, and the group’s technical contributions in: applied psychology- environmental stressors- man in space- psychopharmacology and performance- psychophysiology- sleep and circadian rhythms, including fatigue modeling- sustained operations and fatigue in aircrews and also in ground operations, including work scheduling- spatial orientation and situational awareness- team performance, including effects of fatigue- and human systems integration.
