Online Thematic workshop 4: Situational Awareness

Start Date  -  End Date

What is Situational Awareness?

Situational awareness or situation awareness (SA ) has four elements:

  1. extracting information from the environment;
  2. integrating this information with relevant internal knowledge to create a mental picture of the current situation;
  3. using this picture to direct further perceptual exploration in a continual perceptual cycle; and
  4. anticipating future events.

Taking these four elements into account, SA is defined as the continuous extraction of environmental information, the integration of this information with previous knowledge to form a coherent mental picture, and the use of that picture in directing further perception and anticipating future events
