Workload Features inside Air Traffic Control Electronic Transfer Environment
Keywords:air traffic controlle, coordination, electronic data exchange, flight progress strip, handover/takeover environment, workload
Air Traffic Control (ATC) unit responsibilities during the traffic control start with the finalisation of the handover procedures and they finish by passing these responsibilities to following Air Traffic Services. So called Hand/Take over procedures. These activities could be assure by the Electronic handover/takeover device or manually. While inside the civilian ATC environment, there are precise working positions of planning controllers, who are responsible for the preparation of flight planning and all information for Executive Controller, inside the military ATC facilities, the Executive controller will prepare and provide all activities him/herself. Our research on this domain focuses on Workload analysis and a new approach to dynamic Workload SW products available for the military ATC Environment.
