Aviation is still probably the most lively and not easy domain names for human components and utilized psychology. seeing that 1981, the biennial overseas Symposium on Aviation Psychology (ISAP) has been convened for the needs of (a) providing the most recent examine on human functionality difficulties and possibilities inside aviation structures, (b) envisioning layout ideas that most sensible make the most of human features for developing secure and effective aviation platforms, and (c) bringing jointly scientists, study sponsors, and operators which will bridge the space among learn and alertness. although rooted within the displays of the seventeenth ISAP, held in 2013 in Dayton, Ohio, Advances in Aviation Psychology isn't easily a suite of chosen continuing papers. established upon the capability impression on rising tendencies, present debates or enduring matters found in their paintings, opt for authors have been invited to extend on their paintings following the advantage of interactions on the symposium. The invited authors contain the featured keynote and plenary audio system who're all top scientists and favorite researchers that have been chosen to take part on the symposium. those contributions are supplemented by means of extra individuals whose paintings most sensible displays major advancements in aviation psychology. accordingly the quantity comprises visions for the following new release of air administration and air site visitors keep watch over, the combination of unmanned (i.e. remotely piloted autos) into operational air areas, and using complex info applied sciences (e.g. artificial activity environments) for learn and coaching. This e-book is the 1st in a chain of volumes to be released together with each one next ISAP. the purpose of every quantity isn't just to record the most recent findings in aviation psychology but in addition to indicate new instructions for advancing the sector.

Example text

He was instrumental in bringing the tools of communication science and information theory as a framework for quantifying human capacity (for example, bandwidth) in terms that were compatible with metrics used for characterizing the performance of automated systems (for example, bits/s). Building on computer and communication system metaphors, human cognition was modeled as a system of information processing stages. One of the most widely known psychological facts is the magical number seven that refers to the limited amount of information one could hold in one’s short-term memory.

As an offshoot of aviation, the space race leveraged aviation psychology to support operations beyond the atmosphere. One of the eerie echoes from the early days of aviation was the sometimes acrimonious debate regarding the role (if any) of the human astronaut in controlling the spacecraft (Mindell, 2008). Many engineers felt that only automated systems could be trusted to deal with the unknown conditions of vehicle control in space while the pilot and astronaut communities argued for more prominent roles for the human in the astronaut– spacecraft team.

Considerable human involvement in controlling and monitoring UAV operations is expected to continue not only because of the technological challenges, but also because of the legal and moral issues associated with deploying weapons systems (see, for example, Bowden, 2013). In the area of NextGen, wide-ranging changes are proposed and planned to prepare the US for the anticipated growing air travel demand through 2025. Sheridan (2009) outlined some of the significant changes in equipment and roles and responsibilities of pilots and ATC controllers that include the use of ADS-B technology (automatic dependent surveillance broadcast) that would provide more accurate latitude and longitude surveillance than radar; fourdimensional trajectories to be negotiated between airlines operations personnel, pilots, controllers and airport managers well before flight time; digital datalink as the major means of air–ground communication; and pilots assuming primary responsibility for self-separation while controllers assume more flow management responsibilities.
