Panel 1: Situation Awareness in Security Domains
Panel Chair: Mr. Scott Fouse, Lockheed Martin
Wednesday, March 5th, 2014, 11:00 - 12:30 pm
The aim of this panel discussion is to provide a better understanding of the key elements of situation awareness (SA) for those tasked with providing security. Panelists will address the three key components of SA envisioned by Dr. Mica Endsley (1995): perception of elements in the environment, the comprehension of their meaning, and projection to the near future. Panelists will address a number topics ranging from the current state of security technology, including the current and potential benefits of incorporating SA principles, to recommendations for enhancing the field. Panelists range from experience in physical security (protection of property or personnel) to cyber security. Examples include providing security for a warehouse/apartment complex, an operating base in Afghanistan, a bank, or an information system.
Panel 2: Situation Awareness in Extreme Environments: Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief
Thursday, March 6th, 2014, 11:00 - 12:30Panel Chair: Dr. Kristin Schaefer, ARL
The aim of this panel discussion is to explore the key elements of situation awareness (SA) within extreme environments. Extreme environments are considered to be complex, high stress, and/or demanding environments or occupations that often utilize human-technology systems. This panel will focus on the integration of SA as a means to advance humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. Examples include development of technology (e.g., robotics, automation, virtual reality, threat assessment technology), environmental risk and assessment (e.g., forest fires, hurricane relief, etc.), and communication of information including big data (e.g., cognitive radio networks, information fusion, network science, etc.).
