Concept investigation via air-ground simulation with embedded agents  (2006)
Abstract Header
Next Generation Air Transportation System (NGATS) concepts require design and analysis of interactions involving human operators and new automation tools. Research is exploring how air-ground simulations with embedded agents can complement human-in-the loop simulations for this purpose. This paper describes research toward integrating computational air traffic controller agents into a large-scale distributed simulation in the Airspace Operations Laboratory (AOL) at NASA Ames Research Center. Before detailing the agent model and architecture and discussing simulation integration issues, the paper describes a methodology for using agents to understand human-system integration issues and illustrates how the methodology can be applied to an example concept.
