Abstract/Summary Here we report on the development of software agents with human-like performance characteristics for use in simulations of new airspace concepts. The goal of our effort is to use the agents to evaluate the impact of new technologies, such as widespread automation, on the workload and situation awareness of air traffic ontrollers. Our approach combines a task analysis, which provides a functional description of the domain, with a human erformance architecture, from which detailed performance predictions can be made. We are in the preliminary stage of agent development. Here we will focus on how a standard task analysis can be paired with a human performance model to generate behavior that approximates that of the human user. We will also discuss the simulation environment and our progress to date.
