  • 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.
