All the way from Lafayette, Indiana at Purdue University, Mica R. Endsley took off on her career in 1985; graduating with a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering. In 1990, she continued to pursue her interest for engineering by obtaining her Doctor of Philosophy in Industrial and Systems Engineering in Los Angeles at the University of Southern California. Endsley is well-known for her model on situation awareness (SA) in dynamic decision making, which also includes her concepts on decision making and automation. In 2003 for her research, she was awarded the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society Jack Kraft Innovator Award. She is the innovator of a few air force programs such as Cockpit Automation Technology and Pilot’s Associate. For the future of systems design, her legacy has made an influence in improving human situation awareness and decision-making in advanced automation and artificial intelligence. As the first human factors female engineer and first female to serve as Chief Scientist of the Air Force, her determination to stick with a human factors plan centralized towards cognitive psychology has been effective in integrating people with the world’s ever most perpetually developing technology. With an overwhelming number of 200 scientific papers on situation awareness, decision- making and automation, three of her colloquially used research reports are “Design and evaluation for situational awareness enhancement,” “Cognitive Engineering and Decision Making: An Overview and Future Course,” and her prominent figure for situational awareness in “Toward a Theory of Situation Awareness in Dynamic Systems,” which are all a part of the Journal of Cognitive Engineering and Decision Making. Along with the approximate 200 papers she’s written, Endsley has co-authored with two books called “Analysis and Measurement of Situation Awareness” and “Designing for Situation Awareness.” Endsley is currently the President of Situational Awareness (SA) Technologies, a cognitive engineering firm that has ramified from Endsley’s work since 1997. Her company is unique due to their frequently updated production of software and technology for many industries that are integral to how the Air Force functions such as creating new systems for air traffic control, aviation, space, cyber, power system operations, military command and control, and even the medical field. When she was working on programs for the Air Force in Northrop, she developed her very first concept of situation awareness, introduced ideas to measure situational awareness, and founded a research program for enhancing her plans for situation awareness. On her journey to being the founder of SA Technologies, she had taken lots of superior p
