This paper presents a theoretical model of situation awareness based on its role in dynamic human decision making in a variety of domains. Situation awareness is presented as a predominant concern in system operation, based on a descriptive view of decision making. The relationship between situation awareness and numerous individual and environmental factors is explored. Among these factors, attention and working memory are presented as critical factors limiting operators from acquiring and… 
A Comprehension Based Cognitive Model of Situation Awareness
TLDR
This paper proposes a process model of situation awareness that views the construction of the situation model as a comprehension process comparable to discourse comprehension and describes a current project that aims at implementing this model in the cognitive architecture ACT-R.
A fuzzy model of knowledge awareness

TLDR
The Fuzzy Awareness concepts proposed in this paper allow the investigator to describe the human, system, contextual, operational and temporal variability effects that occur in such contexts as process control, business, military operations and management.
Do you get the picture?: situation awareness and system safety
TLDR
This paper will argue that operator situation awareness is an important, safety-related phenomenon and that it can be used to examine human cognition in context in order to add value to system safety and a model of this critical phenomenon is presented.
Modeling the situation awareness by the analysis of cognitive process.
TLDR
The situational awareness model can provide a reference for designing new cockpit display interfaces and help reducing human errors and predicting changes of situation awareness for pilot operating with different display interface and tasks.
Driving and Situation Awareness: A Cognitive Model of Memory-Update Processes
TLDR
A theory that is based on results from studies in language understanding and attention and that is applied to the driving context is proposed and mechanisms for the construction of a situation model and for the selection of actions are outlined.
Situation Awareness and Dynamic Performance Training Systems: Some Reflections on the Literature
The majority of the literature on situation awareness is focused on its perceptual definition and modeling. In contrast, this presentation focuses on the importance of training simulation systems in
A Complex Perspective of System Situation Awareness
TLDR
This work proposes out the concept of System Situation Awareness (SSA) and tries to extend the range of awareness from human to system and focus more on system design to enhance SSA with the approach of human system integration.
System State Awareness
TLDR
It is argued that the traditional concept of a fully controlled system is not the best fit for a complex system with networked loci of control, especially during abnormal system states, and that an approach focusing on System State Awareness (SSA) facilitates the adaptation of system goals during off-normal system states.
Is situation awareness all in the mind?
This paper addresses the fundamental discipline theoretic question of whether situation awareness is a phenomenon best described by psychology, engineering or systems ergonomics. Each of these
Distributed situation awareness in dynamic systems: theoretical development and application of an ergonomics methodology
TLDR
It is proposed that agents within a system each hold their own situation awareness, which may be very different from (although compatible with) that of other agents, and that the authors should not always hope for, or indeed want, sharing of this awareness.

A Theory of Situation Assessment: Implications for Measuring Situation Awareness
TLDR
A theory encompassing both a definition of SA and a model of situation assessment and a number of cognitive biases that result from the knowledge matching process are discussed, as are implications for partial report measures of situation awareness.
Situation Awareness: A Critical But Ill-Defined Phenomenon
TLDR
The cognitive basis of the concept is analyzed, embedding it in the context of related psychological concepts, and methodological approaches to the investigation of situation awareness are discussed.
Predictive Utility of an Objective Measure of Situation Awareness
Situation awareness (SA) can generally be defined as the pilot's mental model of the world around him. The ability of the pilot to maintain situation awareness has been recognized in the pilot
Towards an internal model in pilot training.
TLDR
An extension of the behavioral framework of pilot training might help to prepare the pilot better for the increasingly complex flight environment based on the theoretical model of schema theory, which evolved out of psychological research.
Situation awareness information requirements for en route air traffic control.
TLDR
A determination of the major situation awareness information requirements for En Route ATC was developed, providing a foundation for future system development which seeks to enhance controller situation awareness and provides a basis for the development of situation awareness measures for air traffic control.
Individual Differences in Pilot Situation Awareness
Although anecdotal evidence has suggested considerable individual differences in the abilities of pilots to acquire and maintain situation awareness (SA), specific research to validate this claim and
Metacognitive Strategies in Support of Recognition
TLDR
A revised view of decision making is produced, one that stresses knowledge-based, recognitional processing rather than general-purpose, analytical methods, and a full understanding of recognitionalprocessing and its implications for the design of decision aids has not yet been achieved.
Design and Evaluation for Situation Awareness Enhancement
TLDR
A discussion of the SA construct, important considerations facing designers of aircraft systems, and current research in the area of SA measurement are presented.
