Controllers must be able to detect, identify and assimilate large amounts of data from competing sources of information, to make accurate judgments and timely decisions within this highly complex and dynamic task environment (Lamoureux, Cox and Kirwan, 1999; Smolensky, 1999). The dynamic nature of the task has a considerable impact upon the judgments and decisions made by the controllers (Kerstholt, 1993). With a task environment that continually changes, one of the largest dangers to the system is therefore the failure of the controllers to estimate and prepare for future system states.

Important aspects of cognition that should be accounted for include a model of information processing, an understanding of working memory and long term memory, and types of behaviour exhibited by the job incumbent. The exact manner in which these theories are used will depend upon the application of the CTA. When considering working memory, it is also important to be aware of ‘chunking’ strategies adopted and the half-life of material in working memory. Long term memory should be considered with respect to types of memory, triggers, item strength and association, networks, schema and models, and knowledge type.

If the controller judges the distance between the aircraft to be less than 5nm when it is not, valuable mental resources will be needlessly allocated away from possibly more important factors. e. via the radar display) might also have an impact in the accuracy of these judgments: the distances between certain conflict-types were more difficult to judge. This is possibly because controllers have a greater difficulty in visualising the pathways of the certain conflict types. The mental rotation required for conflicts with greater angles of convergence may be more difficult for the controllers to judge (Shepard and Metzler, 1971).
