AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL AUTOMATION. IN: HANDBOOK OF AVIATION HUMAN FACTORS

This paper covers both automation and computer assistance in relation to the air traffic controller, but does not treat these concepts as synonymous. It specifies some distinguishing characteristics of each in relation to human factors. Some of the technological advances that have human factors implications include: communications; radar; navigation aids; satellites; automatically transponded data; datalinks; information displays; electronic flight progress strips; and data input devices. Computations with human factors implications include: alerting; track deviation; conflict detection; conflict resolution; computer-assisted approach sequencing and ghosting; flows and slots; traffic flow management; and free flight. The paper also provides a classification of human-machine relationships
