A Method for Evaluating the Safety Impacts of Air Traffic Automation. By Peter Kostiuk, Gerald Shapir, Dave Hanson, Stephan Kolitz, Frank Leong, Gene Rosch and Charles Bonesteel. Abstract. this report provides a significant starting point for analyses of terminal area technologies. To meet tight time and resource constraints, we needed to. In recent years, increases in the amount and changes in the distribution of air traffic have been very dramatic and are continuing. The need for changes in the current air traffic systems is equally clear. While automation is generally accepted as a method of improving system safety and. Assessing the air traffic control safety impact of airline pilot induced latencies. a radar-data based Evaluation Method to assess Safety," in: Proceedings of the International Conference on Research in Air Transportation (ICRAT). Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Application and Theory of Automation in Command and.   The air traffic controller workload is the basic factor determining the safety of flight operations. The aim of this research was to develop a simulation method for assessing the controller time workload. The method presented in the paper uses a mathematical model that simultaneously considers the air traffic and the work of the controller.

ATC (air traffic control) automation system is a complex system, which helps maintain the air traffic order, guarantee the flight interval, and prevent aircraft collision. It is essential to ensure the safety of air traffic. Failure effects evaluation is an important part of ATC automation system reliability engineering. The failure effects evaluation of ATC automation system is aimed at the.   Human Factors Impacts in Air Traffic Management book. especially in systems with increased levels of automation. This book seeks to redress this situation by presenting case studies of human factors applications in which there is demonstrable success in terms of improvement in operational systems. Case studies include training methods. performance, this paper introduces a method for safety impact assessment that takes the characteristics of continuous road vehicle automation according to [3] into account. Human driver performance is used as a baseline. 2 Background For safety impact assessment of (advanced) driver assistance systems with environment. The importance of a safety management system (SMS) is reinforced by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO)'s mandate requiring its introduction.

Air Traffic Service Area Directors, Directors of Tactical Operations (DTO), and Air Traffic Managers (Facility Managers) are responsible for evaluating their respective facilities annually. Safety Evaluations retains oversight of the evaluation process, conducts audits of facilities, performs program assessments, and provides assistance to the. There is perhaps no facet of modern society where the influence of computer automation has not been felt. Flight management systems for pilots, diagnostic and surgical aids for physicians, navigational displays for drivers, and decision-aiding systems for air-traffic controllers, represent only a few of the numerous domains in which powerful new automation technologies have been introduced. A Method for Evaluating the Safety Impacts of Air Traffic Automation This report describes a methodology for analyzing the safety and operational impacts of emerging air traffic technologies. The approach integrates traditional reliability models of the system infrastructure with models that analyze the environment within which the system operates, and models of how the system responds to. • Safety methods should be published as part of safety training material at any organisation level. • Safety assessment results should be made available to all engineering and decision making levels. • A total aviation system approach, as followed in the Causal model for Air Transport Safety (CATS).
