The US National Airspace System (NAS) is incredibly complex, and consists of many specific functions. Given predicted increases in air traffic, enhancement of the current system and development of the NextGEN system are critical to maintain safe and efficient operation. Each feature of the system needs to be carefully designed, developed, tested and(More)
This study compared the performance of 40 monocular and 40 binocular tractor-trailer drivers on measures of both visual and driving performance. On the visual measures, the mononuclear drivers were significantly deficient in contrast sensitivity, visual acuity under low illumination and glare, and binocular depth perception. They were not significantly(More)
The global Air Traffic Management (ATM) system represents one of the most complex human-machine systems known. As the system has evolved in step with traffic demands, automation has been increasingly called upon to augment the capacities of the human operator, namely the air traffic controller. Future generations of ATM automation seek to augment, or even(More)
The MUFASA project simulated "automation performance" using unrecognizable replays of a given controller's own previous performance. Using a prototype air traffic control interface, it explored with operational air traffic controllers the interactive effects of traffic complexity, level of automation and "strategic conformance" (defined as the match between(More)
(max. 2000 char.): In this report we focus on developing and testing methods for the analysis of team situation awareness. That is, focus is on methods for analysing team situation awareness relating visual and other behavioural data; development of tools to facilitate usability and efficiency of Eye Point of Gaze (EPOG) data collection; and exploration and(More)
In the context of EUROCONTROL’s Conflict Resolution Assistant (CORA) project, a systematic assessment was made of ATC management and controller attitudes and beliefs, especially as they relate to potential future forms of automation. This was carried out through a series of seven site visits to ATC centres around western Europe. Focus groups and surveys(More)
