In the Distributed Air Ground Traffic Management (DAG-TM) simulation environments pilots flew desktop simulators, which included a Cockpit Situation Display (CSD). Within the current paper we will briefly review the tasks pilots were responsible for in the simulations and subsequently evaluate the tools made available on the CSD to assist the pilots in executing their tasks. Some of the tasks pilots were responsible for in the simulations included the following: to create and evaluate user-preferred routes, meet flight scheduling requirements at the meter fix, selfspace behind designated aircraft, and maintain separation with other aircraft. Some of the tools offered within the CSD to facilitate these tasks included a Route Analysis Tool (RAT), a Waypoint table with capabilities to input scheduling requirements, a Spacing tool, and Conflict Detection and Alerting logic. A detailed examination of these features and others will be discussed
