The tasks involved in Air Traffic Control (ATC) make heavy demands on the information processing capacities of air traffic controllers. In particular, human factors problems that lead to both major and minor incidents are considered to be a serious problem for ATC in Air Traffic safety. Therefore, the need to analyze error mechanism, which occurs due to complex factors, and the need for developing systems that can deal with these errors are increasing. We examined the functional problems in an ATC system from the human factors aspects, and concluded that solution of this problem needs some kinds of measures. This research focuses on analysis of the air traffic controller's tasks for en-route ATC and modeling controller's cognitive process.
