Decentralized command and control settings like those found in the military are rife with complexity and change. These settings typically involve dozens, if not hundreds to thousands, of heterogeneous players coordinating in a distributed fashion in a dynamically networked battlefield laden with sensor data, intelligence reports, communications, and plans emanating from many different perspectives. Consider the concept of team situation awareness in this setting. What does it mean for a team to… 
Just talk - An experimental task for investigation of team situation awareness
In highly dynamic and complex work environments (e.g. aviation, surgery) teamwork is omnipresent and it is crucial for performance that team members have a high degree of individual as well as team
A comparison of shared and distributed situation awareness in teams through the use of agent-based modelling
ABSTRACT The question of how situation awareness is managed in a team remains a challenge for ergonomics. In this paper, a task was designed in which team members were required to identify a ‘rogue’
Cyber situation awareness and teamwork
TLDR
Observations from previously conducted cognitive task analyses suggest that teamwork is lacking in many cyber analysis organizations and Suggestions for improving teamwork in the cyber domain are offered.
1 CONVERGING APPROACHES TO AUTOMATED COMMUNICATIONS-BASED ASSESSMENT OF TEAM SITUATION AWARENESS
TLDR
Network Centric Warfare or Network Centric Operations (NCO), a theory of warfare in the information age, and NCO concepts are not the sole province of military organizations; they are also being applied in large and economically important commercial organizations.
Team Cognition as a Mechanism for Developing Collaborative and Proactive Decision Support in Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems
TLDR
How team cognition needs to be considered during the development of collaborative and proactive RPAS decision support is discussed, including the concept of team cognition accounting for multiple perspectives, an integrative perspective ofteam cognition for the RPAS domain, and multiple design objectives are outlined.
Investigating information-processing performance of different command team structures in the NATO Problem Space
TLDR
It is shown that the much touted all-connected structure is often the worst performing structure and that the traditional hierarchy of command and control has much merit in the digital information age.
Studying Shared Situation Awareness by Agent-Based Simulation
TLDR
This paper proposes Agent-Based Social Simulation as a scientific method to study questions related to Shared SA and presents an agent-based framework, which allows users to explore a variety of hypothetical scenarios in an automated manner.

Team situation assessment and information distribution
TLDR
The interaction patterns that emerge in the respective teams and their consequences for situation assessment and situation awareness are discussed and the differences are discussed in terms of means of sharing information.
Situation Awareness Information Dominance & Information Warfare.
TLDR
The concept of information dominance and the issues involved in attaining it are explored through a model of situation awareness within the context of the type of complex, distributed crews (or military units) envisioned in future military operations.
Shared situation awareness in the flight deck-ATC system
TLDR
Preliminary experimental results indicate that situation awareness was improved when information was shared between the cockpit and the ground, and shared information between flight crews and air traffic controllers may be beneficial in terms of improved situation awareness.
Shared situation awareness in the flight deck-ATC system
The comparison of pilots' and controllers' goals and SA information requirements revealed many parallels at the higher levels. At the more detailed, lower levels, however, subtle underlying

Adaptive Team Coordination
TLDR
A team-training procedure designed to train teams to adapt by shifting from explicit to implicit modes of coordination and choosing strategies that are appropriate during periods of high stress and workload conditions showed that the adaptation training significantly improved performance from pre- to posttraining and when compared with a control group.
Situation Awareness Is Adaptive, Externally Directed Consciousness
TLDR
A construct is introduced to represent the invariant relations in the environment that enable the agent to adapt to novel situations and to attain prespecified goals and that satisfies the goals and performance criteria for safe and efficient flight.
