Situation Awareness Analysis and Measurement provides a comprehensive overview of different approaches to the measurement of situation awareness in experimental and applied settings. Creating system designs and training programs to enhance situation awareness is a key goal in the development of systems in such widely ranging fields as aviation, advanced transportation programs, command and control, process control, and medicine. This book directly tackles the problem of ensuring that system designs and training programs are effective at promoting situation awareness.
Situation Awareness Analysis and Measurement is the first book to provide a comprehensive coverage of situation awareness and its measurement. Topics addressed provide a detailed analysis of the use of a wide variety of techniques for measuring situation awareness and situation assessment processes. It will provide a rich resource for engineers and human factors psychologists involved in designing and evaluating systems in many domains.
"Situation awareness (SA) is, simply put, understanding the situation in which one is operating. The importance of studying SA has been communicated quite well in this volume….For basic research, it provides scientists a crucible to test their laboratory-derived general principles. For applied research, it is a concept of clear and immediate importance."
