Sample 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.
