His principle research interests lies in measures and analysis of teamwork effectiveness, decision-making, and Command and Control performance assessments. Peter has worked with Human Factors research since 1998. He has studied fighter pilots, individual soldiers, tank commanders, Brigade staffs, as well as civil crisis management and emergency response. By participating in military exercises as a scientist, Peter has a long experience of working closely with the military in field experimentation-like situations. Peter is a project manager for an Armed Forces project on assessing Command and Control effectiveness. Staffan Nählinder is a senior scientist at FOI, the Swedish Defence Research Agency. He holds a PhD in Human Machine Interaction from the University of Linköping and a MSc in Psychology and Statistics from University of Uppsala. His principle research interests lies in training, performance assessment, decision-making, mental workload, and situation awareness. He has worked with Human Factors research since 1998. Among other things he has worked with various psychophysiological measures to assess mental workload in both military and civil pilots in both simulated and real flight. Staffan has also worked with transfer of training questions in military training facilities. Erland Svensson, Ph.D., is retired director of research at the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) and professor emeritus at the University of Linköping. He is former director of the Department of Man-System-Interaction (FOI-MSI) and of the Institute of Aviation Medicine, Linköping. His research includes measurements of mental workload, situational awareness, operative performance, modelling and simulation. Erland has been Swedish PfP-representative of NATO RTO Human Factors and Medicine Panel. He has been national point of contact for co-operative activities between USAF/RL, TNO, DSTL and DRDC, and governmental expert in European Defence Agency (EDA). Erland has been a member of the Royal Aeronautical Society, London, of the board of the Swedish Society for Human Factors, and he is a member of the Swedish Society for M.P.s and Scientists (RIFO).
