Lindsay was selected to attend the paid 5-week research internship from June 9 to July 8, 2011 with the Center for Human Factors in Advanced Aeronautics Technologies (CHAAT), a NASA University Research Center.
CHAAT investigators (http://www.csulbchaat.org) measure human performance in complex systems such as the Next Generation Airspace Transportation System (NextGen). NextGen is a program for transforming our current National Airspace System in order to meet the unprecedented growth in demand for air travel. These transformations will be achieved through a user-centered, system-comprehensive strategy that promises to meet the demands of future air travelers, while continuing to improve security, efficiency, and safety. Under NextGen, airspace operators (pilots and air traffic controllers; ATCs) will assume new roles and responsibilities in reaction to the changes in air traffic management and the introduction of new automation technologies to support these changes.
