Retired US Army General Pete Palmer served over 32 years in the Army, which included four tours with NATO and in Kosovo and Iraq. He is now the national-level vice chair for the National Defense Industrial Association-Human Systems Division, acting as a thought leader and advisor for the future evolution of US military services.
In this exclusive interview with NeuroTracker, General Palmer presents the challenge of assessing the operational readiness of military personnel to the standards in place for machines and equipment. For example he explains that there are numerous checks and safeguards in place to make sure a tank is ready to perform as expected, but not for the humans who operate it. The solution? Neurotechnologies like NeuroTracker that can measure readiness for real-world action.
