Air Traffic Operations Lab (ATOL)
ATOL is a multi-fidelity, part-task, air traffic simulation environment that investigates the interactions of manned and unmanned aircraft in a densely populated airspace.

Crew Systems Urban Air Mobility Vehicle Simulator and Mission Planner
Coming Soon!

Head-Worn Displays (HWDs)
HWDs could enable “equivalent HUD” operations with reduced operator cost, and new operational paradigms (e.g., equivalent visual operations).

Multi-Attribute Task Battery (MATB-II)
MATB-II is a computer-based task designed to evaluate operator performance and workload. MATB provides a benchmark set of tasks and analogous to activities that aircraft crew-members perform in flight, with freedom to use by non-pilot subjects. For more information, please visit the MATB-II website.

Psychophysiological Research Investigating State Modulation (PRISM)
PRISM represents a mobile, unobtrusive psychophysiological sensing suite with machine learning state classification capability.

Shadow Mode Assessment using Realistic Technologies for the National Airspace System (SMART-NAS) Testbed
SMART-NAS Testbed is a collaborative, mid to high-fidelity, and distributed ATM simulation and test environment.

Synthetic and Enhanced Vision Systems (SEVS)
SEVS attempts to mitigate the impact of lack of natural visual references by creating an electronic means of visibility using a combination of computer generated imagery, global positioning system information, and imaging sensors.

TUCaN
Coming Soon!

Visual Imaging Simulator for Transport Aircraft Systems (VISTAS)
VISTAS provides a space in which to rapidly prototype crew vehicle interfaces and provide real-time psychophysiological and eye tracking measurements.


Other Facilities Frequently Utilized by CSAOB

Cockpit Motion Facility (CMF)
Provides a number of Hi-fidelity full mission simulators in which to test new crew procedures, advanced ATM concepts, and advanced cockpit technologies. This facility is managed by the Simulation Development and Analysis Branch (SDAB). CSAOB utilizes this facility often for its Hi-fidelity abilities when conducting advanced research studies.
