Abstract
There is a growing interest in employing modeling and simulation technology as a low-cost substitute to live Air-Traffic Control (ATC) exercises. One popular approach is to replace costly human role-players with computer-generated forces (CGFs) representing aircraft. Soar Technology proposes to develop the Tiger Board - an intuitive, domain-centric user interface customized for the composition of CGFs operating in ATC simulation exercises. Our proposed system leverages SoarTech''s Universal Controller, which allows run-time operators to interact with autonomous CGFs using standard ATC speech commands. These commands override any current behavior the CGF is executing. Once the CGF has completed execution of the command, the behavior models automatically and correctly resume their previous behavior, just as would a human pilot.
