This report on the Specification for Controller Working positions in future air traffic control (SWIFT) project concerns technical activities following two different lines: the Human Machine Interface (HMI) oriented activities and the Controller Working Position (CWP) Architecture oriented activities. As a basis of the HMI activities, experimental evaluations of several HMI's corresponding to different scenarios were undertaken. An evaluation instrument (structured questionnaire) was developed to measure the impact of different air traffic control (ATC) automated functions on a range of human factors aspects. The most interesting and innovative validated ideas and concepts emerging from the HMI studies performed during the SWIFT experiments are presented on a single workstation with a 2K 2K screen. The development of this demonstrator was completed by the end of 1994. Regarding the Architecture oriented activities, the performance requirements were updated taking into account the outcome of General Architecture, Graphics Interface and LAN Management research.
