Abstract : The objective of this project is to train graduate students in conducting research in human factors and ergonomics issues related to aviation. Numerous research projects have been completed within this project. They have focused on: (1) an investigation of causal factors related to problems with situation awareness among pilots and air traffic controllers, (2) investigations of automated compensation for enhancing performance in teleoperations task under operator/system control axis misalignment with both static and dynamic misalignments, (3) an investigation of level of automation effects on human performance, situation awareness and workload, (4) an investigation of adaptive automation and level of control on human performance, situation awareness and workload under dual task conditions, and (5) an investigation of cue characteristics related to errors in situation awareness comprehension. Each of these projects provided the AASERT fellows with extensive experience in studying critical issues related to human performance in aviation, and each has resulted in new research that significantly advances scientific knowledge in each of these areas.
