Abstract
THIS RESEARCH FOCUSES ON DETERMINING THE FEASIBILITY OF UF USING EXPERT SYSTEMS TO SUPPORT (RATHER THAN REPLACE) HUMAN DECISION MAKERS. WE INTEND TO SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF USING EXPERT SUPPORT SYSTEMS (ESS) FOR AIR TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS.THIS RESEARCH WILL CONCENTRATE ON THE INTELLIGENT MAN/ MACHINE INTERFACES FOR AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL AND WILL SHOW THEFEASIBILITY OF USING ESS FOR REMOTE MONITORING AND MAINTN TENANCE OF HIGHLY AUTOMATED SYSTEMS. WE INTEND TO SHOW A JOINT DECISION PROCESS (EXPERT SUPPORT SYSTEM AND HUMAN) IN WHICH THE HUMAN IS THE DOMINANT PARTNER. THROUGH A SERIES OF EXAMPLES WE WILL SHOW HOW A KNOWLEDGE BASE CAN BE MERGED WITH AN INFERENCE ENGINE RESULTING IN AN EXPERT SYSTEMS ARCHITECTURE, THAT COULD PRODPROVIDE SUPPORT FOR AIR TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM DECISIONS.
