Abstract

Situation awareness (SA) research has highlighted many important problems concerning the ability of operators to cope with opaque interfaces in complex systems. This same research, however, has shown that SA can be extremely difficult to measure. We therefore provide a methodology for measuring one functional aspect of SA: the operator's ability to judge the state of the task environment on the basis of uncertain information. The approach is based on Judgment Analysis and Brunswik's lens model and its modern extensions.
