1345-1415 Dr. Dale Russell + Dr. Rachel Markwald “Crew Endurance + Sleep Study”

10 August 2021 The Surface Force is waking up to a new understanding – quality sleep at sea lends itself to good Sailor health and performance. While heavy-eyed Sailors think there is a point of pride in sleep-depriving themselves, a wake-up call is necessary. Making time for sleep is not seen as a sign of weakness and there is no perceived badge of honor for forgoing shut-eye in favor of long underway workdays. From Mediterranean sunrises to South Pacific sunsets, adventure is an everyday experience while deployed. Being a Navy Sailor allows you to see the world from a unique perspective that relatively few get to experience. But living aboard a ship comes with its own unique challenges, especially when it comes to catching some Z’s. To address this, the Surface Warfare community has placed a premium on a good night’s sleep by implementing watchbills and duty rotations to complement circadian rhythms or natural sleep cycles that will be tracked in real-time.

Life at sea is a grind, packed daily routines and high operational tempos that often come at the sacrifice of sleep. This leads to crew fatigue, which can cause problems with health, performance, and relationships. To understand how poor sleep can affect Sailors, last year the Surface Force began asking Sailors about the factors that impact crew endurance. So far, they’ve received answers from about 16,000 Sailors.
