Paper Abstract

A human air traffic controller perceives possible aircraft collisions from a display of many aircraft. In the work described here, the computer understands the displayed aircraft conflict data by processing a global, semantic representation of the displayed data. Understanding implies that the computer can represent and interpret the displayed data in a manner suggestive of an experienced human controller. The representation is called the conflict structure. The paper describes the conflict structure and its use by an expert system that performs the enroute air traffic control task. An example is taken from a 'live' air traffic control training problem.
