Update on March 12th, 2014

Hi All,

Thanks for those of you who participated in the study and completed the survey! It's you that made all this possible. Today I am glad to report that the study is closed and part of the data was analyzed. We had some really interesting findings, and I would like to share them with you. Here is the link to the tech report we wrote based on the findings:

If you are interested in learning more about the non-cooperative object project, a longer version of the tech report and my thesis would give you a good overview and detailed information. They could be found here:

Again, thank you very much for supporting our research!

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at xiaochen.yuan@uwaterloo.ca .

Hi All,

I am a master's student at University of Waterloo in Canada. I am right now seeking air traffic controllers and pilots to participate in a 30-minute online survey. The following recruitment letter provides more details about the study.

Thanks for your interest!

PARTICIPANTS NEEDED FOR
INVESTIGATING THE CONTROLLER AND PILOT PREFERENCE OF NON-COOPERATIVE OBJECTS INFORMATION LEVEL OF DETAIL

We are looking for volunteers to take part in an online survey study examining controllers and pilots’ preference of non-cooperative object (i.e. birds, unmanned aircraft systems, weather, etc.) information level of detail in radar surveillance systems. The results will be used as a foundation to provide mitigation strategies for current radar surveillance systems on how the non-cooperative objects, especially unmanned aircraft, should be displayed. This project is conducted under the supervision of Professor Jonathan Histon.

In order to participate in the study, you are expected to have professional working/training experience as an air traffic controller or pilot. In the survey, you would be asked to answer questions about your experience with non-cooperative unmanned aircraft, your preference of information level of detail regarding the display of unmanned aircraft, and potential factors that would affect your communication with the pilots/controllers.

The survey takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, which can be finished whenever and wherever at your convenience, as long as you have the access to the internet. Please be noted that no login and passwords are required, therefore the survey has to be completed at one sitting. Participation is voluntary and anonymous. Although no monetary remuneration will be given, your commitment is greatly appreciated.

To volunteer for this study, please click:  http://edu.surveygizmo.com/s3/1118696/Registration

This study has been reviewed by, and received ethics clearance through,
the Office of Research Ethics, University of Waterloo.

This has also been approved by LiveATC.net - I would encourage any interested controllers to take the survey and help this student out. 

Thanks,
Dave

I just love the term "non-cooperative objects".... would that include my daughter ten years ago when she was a teenager?

I can hear Sully now, "We just flew through a couple dozen NCO's and we're going to be in the Hudson."

You're very welcome - glad it worked out well.  I'm sure many will be interested in reading through the research.

Say hi to Prof. Histon for me.

Thanks,
Dave
