OBJECTIVE This article provides a critical review of research pertaining to the measurement of human factors (HF) issues in current and future air traffic control (ATC). BACKGROUND Growing worldwide air traffic demands call for a radical departure from current ATC systems. Future systems will have a fundamental impact on the roles and responsibilities of ATC officers (ATCOs). Valid and reliable methods of assessing HF issues associated with these changes, such as a potential increase (or… CONTINUE READING
