Pilot and Controller Evaluations of Separation Function Allocation in Air Traffic Management  (2013)
Abstract Header
Two human-in-the-loop simulation experiments were conducted in coordinated fashion to investigate the allocation of separation assurance functions between ground and air and between humans and automation. The experiments modeled a mixed-operations concept in which aircraft receiving ground- based separation services shared the airspace with aircraft providing their own separation service (i.e., self-separation). Ground-based separation was provided by air traffic controllers without automation tools, with tools, or by ground-based automation with controllers in a managing role. Airborne self- separation was provided by airline pilots using self-separation automation enabled by airborne surveillance technology.
