  • Abstract:
    The safety, reliability, and efficiency of the National Airspace System (NAS) depend upon the men and women who operate and use it. Aviation human factors research is the study of how people function in the performance of their jobs as pilots, controllers, maintenance, and ground support personnel. Increasing automation and system complexity are placing new and different demands on the staff of the nation's air transportation system. Concern over human performance in safety has been raised in Congress, industry and the academic community. Recently, special attention has been placed on both the air traffic control (ATC) system and flight deck operations. In the past, with a few notable exceptions, such as Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) and Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS), the development and application of new aviation system technology both in the ATC and flight systems has been directed toward increasing the traffic capacity of the NAS, rather than being directed primarily toward the improvement of flight safety. The present program is intended to develop and apply advanced behavioral analysis and technology specifically toward the advancement of flight safety.
