Paper 27 -- Carbon Copy: The Benefits of Autonomous Cognitive Models of Air Traffic Controllers in Large-Scale Simulations

NextGen proposes a suite of new technologies and procedures to be employed by the en route air traffic controller. Typically, the benefits of NextGen concepts are evaluated using fast-time simulation systems. However, these systems often ignore the human component of the National Airspace System (NAS) or represent it with little fidelity. Providing better estimates of NextGen productivity and efficiency benefits requires, in part, better models of human performance. In this paper we describe the construction and use of a cognitive model, Edgar, designed to address this problem
Theme: Human Factors
Keywords: autonomous agents, cognitive modeling, controller workload, human performance
