Full TitleSituation Awareness in Critical Incident Management
Situation awareness is the capability to analyze and understand the evolution of a situation from the ongoing interplay between the occurring events and the actions leveraged to control the situation. Situation awareness combines cognitive functions, such as attention, perception, interpretation and anticipation with the capacity to find plausibility in scattered data, information gaps, missing links and equivocal data sets. Although situation awareness may be analyzed as individual, collective (several individuals working in parallel) and coordinated (several individuals working in a input-process-output type of relationship) processes, this project is fundamentally focused on Collaborative Situation Awareness (CSA). CSA considers a team of mutually dependent people contributing as a whole to construct awareness.
