Country: Netherlands

Orientation on situation awareness and crisis management. NLR report TR 2000-668

A literature review and state of the art investigation were carried out in order to find the most promising approach for the remainder of the project. The following questions were addressed:

1. What exactly are Situation Awareness and Threat Management? What factors affect them?
2. What do we mean by 'threat' and what type of threats do we consider in the project?
3. What is the relationship between SA and TM?
4. How are SA and TM dealt with in other domains?
5. What is state of the art in respect to training (development)?

Three sources of information were consulted. In the first place, a vast literature study was carried out to answer questions 1 - 3. The literature study supplied the theoretical background and constructs for the key-concepts of the project - Situation Awareness and Threat Management. Question number 4 was answered by holding interviews with experts in 6 different domains. The last question was answered by analysing current programs in research institutes and universities to ensure the most novel and up-to-date results.

The report provides an excellent and thorough overview for those interested in Situation Awareness and Crisis Management.
