NameSituational awareness for critical infrastructure protection


High level of situation awareness is a key factor in many domains to ensure correct decision making and actions. Situation awareness has been studied extensively in the aviation and military domains but the research also applies to other domains e.g. power grid operations and managing disturbances of electricity supply. Based on the research design principles have been created in order to help system designers to create better user interfaces for systems used in operational activities. These principles have been applied when designing the situation awareness system concept for managing disturbances of electricity supply.
