This paper investigates the automation reliability and the transparency in automation conflict resolutionadvisories for air traffic control. Fourgeneral effects: those of traffic load, those of expertise and,those of imperfect automationand its mitigation by automation transparencyin the context of the lumberjack analogywere examined. The results showed that the two automation functions, theconflict resolution advisor (CRA)and thevertical situation display (VSD) offer benefits for both novice andprofessional controllers’s performance and increased situation awarenessacross traffic loads, even when the former is of imperfect reliability.
