Situation Awareness and Decision Support Tools for demanding marine operations (SITAWARE/SITUMAR)
Research Project, 2012 – 2014

The SITUMAR project will focus on how people make decisions during demanding and advanced marine operations, particularly under stress. Advanced and demanding marine operations have become more challenging (deeper waters, heavier loads, hasher environments) and control systems and organisations have consequently become more complicated. The trend has been to add more technology, functionality and routines to the technical system. There is to-day a vast gap between the data available to the user and the information really needed. The SITUMAR project intends to alter this trend of growing complexity by user-centred design (UCD) that simplifies the technical systems and interfaces. The purpose is to learn how to build optimal systems for Situation Awareness (SA) and operator decision support.
