What is Situational Awareness?
John Spacey, October 16, 2015 updated on April 19, 2018
Situational awareness is your perception of information in a fast moving environment that requires decisions to be made quickly. A common example is the information processed by an air traffic controller. Many decision making processes assume that a dynamic amount of time is available for a decision. However, in many real world situations, decisions must be made within a fixed time frame that may be very short. Situational awareness is a field of study that examines the cognitive and environmental factors that lead to high quality decisions in short time frames.
