A simulation of the space robotic arm navigation task is described. This simulation is used in both a human-in-the-loop simulation experiment to generate human performance data, and is coupled with a computational model of the human: MORIS, whose outputs are compared to the human operator data for both nominal conditions at three levels of operation, and for automation-failure conditions. Scan mediated model predictions of automation failure response are validated by the human performance data.
