In paper is presented a research complex which will recreate as closely as possible the diversity of the real working environment with appropriate incentives and will register the necessary examination of physical, physiological signals and parameters. Apparatus complex will simulate close to real work situations, will include tests necessary to assess the psychological status of the research subject. Further ahead in the complex algorithm will monitor the overall conduct of the experiment will record and process information from all physiological channels: electro miograma, electrocardiogram, blood pressure, pulse wave, respiration rate, galvanic skin response. The operator will receive visual and auditory information from the computer complex and will communicate with him through a special keyboard, standard optical mouse, track ball, stick and pedal controls. It is proposed methodology for conducting comprehensive studies of operator in extreme conditions. The developed complex will contribute to enhancing the skills of operators of mission-critical systems - pilots, pilots, operators of unmanned aerial vehicles, astronauts, heads of air traffic, nuclear operators and drivers of public transport.
