As the world continues to embrace the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs), the challenges of integrating UASs with existing aircraft operations increase exponentially. To proactively address these issues, Fort Hill Group has developed two interactive visualizations based on 1,346 UAS sightings reported to the FAA by pilots, air traffic controllers, and civilians.
Air Traffic Analysis and Classification System (AirTracs)
The Air Traffic Analysis and Classification System (AirTracs) was developed to systematically and thoroughly examine the impact of human performance on air traffic near miss events, incidents, and accidents. The AirTracs framework promotes the identification of human factors trends by allowing factors from the immediate operator context to agency-wide influences to be traced to individual events while still being able to identify human factors patterns and trends.
Human and Organizational Safety Technique (HOST)
Fort Hill Group developed the Human and Organizational Safety Technique (HOST) in an effort to proactively examine concepts to identify and mitigate potential human performance risks and system-level contributing factors. Identifying potential human performance hazards during the early stages of concept development reduces implementation time, costs, and safety risks.
