Abstract: This special issue presents some of the recent work of Human Factors in this area to show how it can assist the development of battlefield technologies and associated training programs, as well as the warning of what will happen if these lessons are not put into practice. The papers presented cover a range of key areas surrounding battlefield technologies, including technology acquisition, the design and evaluation of new technologies, human processes, methodological evaluation and selection, and training. There are three papers covering approaches to design and evaluation of digital technology, three papers considering the human processes in command and control, and three papers considering training needs, technologies and skill fade. Whilst this does not present the broader coverage of the Human Factors discipline, it does provide a snapshot into some of the important aspects applied to Battlefield Technology. A brief introduction to each of the papers is presented along with a summary of the main conclusions at the end of the editorial.
