ERATO: Cooperative Tools Based on Cognitive Engineering

Abstract : The European Air Traffic Control system (ATC) has entered a deep crisis : this system is unable to meet a tremendous increase in the demand. This is not only the consequence of its inertia ; such inertia is normal for any complex system. Short term measures to optimize the present tools appear to be insufficient : these tools have already reached the limits of their development capability. A wide−ranging discussion, on how to enhance ATC methods and tools, has begun. Very ambitious goals have been set for the future systems : for example the French CAUTRA V project plans to double the capacity of the system by the year 2005 and to significantly increase safety. Numerous ambitious projects exist, but none of them has yet proved its efficiency or even its feasibility. ATC automation is really short of effective solutions.
