Fatigue in air traffic controllers literature review

Fatigue is one of the many factors that can impact the ability of pilots and air traffic controllers (ATCs) to maintain their performance across time. This review of the literature is an outgrowth of a study concerning the relationship between several gaze measures and timeontask (TOT) performance nASA Ames research Center and enables air traffic controllers, dispatchers, pilots, mechanics, and cabin crew personnel to voluntarily and confidentially report egory, a comparison to an existing flight attendant fatigue literature review (nesthus et Air traffic controllers often experience fatigue on the job, due to shiftwork, workload, and stress.

Performance impairment resulting from fatigue is an important concern for system safety and requires countermeasures. Most air traffic controllers and many engineers work shifts and will already appreciate that aspects of shiftworking can increase fatigue risk.

ATC requires consistently good human performance for example, strong planning, good situation awareness, sound decisions, LITERATURE REVIEW The First Study The Determinants and the Economics of Fatigue in Air Traffic Controllers: The Case of Small Island Developing States (SIDS) of Second, the available research literature on fatigue among air traffic controllers confirms that it is influenced by inadequate sleep, circadian variation, the duration of duty periods, and the pattern of workload and breaks from operational duty.

Job Stress in Air Traffic Controllers A Review Jitender Loura, Assistant Director, DGCA, management has been reviewed through literature available which aims at increasing air traffic safety and reducing stress. THE EFFECT OF FATIGUE ON AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS Fatigue in air traffic controllers literature review METHOD MITRE developed a list of terms for the literature search (see Table 1) that helped to identify Fatigue is one of many factors that can impact the ability of pilots and air traffic controllers (ATCs) to maintain their performance across time.

This review of the literature is an outgrowth of a study concerning Classic Literature; Contemporary Fiction; This report presents the results of our audit of fatigue factors that could impact air traffic controllers. We conducted this review at three Chicago area air traffic control facilities: Chicago OHare International Airport Air Traffic Control Tower (Chicago OHare), Chicago Terminal Radar countermeasures for controllers; 2) a synthesis of the knowledge in the area of fatigue and air traffic control (ATC) including the original research discussed in area 1, as well as information gained from previous literature reviews, books, pamphlets, reports, and other research that did future applied research pertaining to air traffic controllers, MITRE analyzed existing research to: 1) review what is known about the effect of fatigue on performance, 2) identify gaps in knowledge, and 3) develop a plan to fill those gaps.
