Pilots doing a safety check

Aerospace and tactical training

For operators working in cockpits, control rooms, and other critical environments, situational awareness is vital to making the right decisions. Rigorous training in real-world or simulated environments can be the difference between success and failure. 


Why eye tracking?

Eye tracking provides insight into human behavior, helping you understand how individuals or teams perform in high-fidelity simulations and live environments. The advantages of using eye tracking to measure and assess performance include:   

  • Optimizing training processes and systems 
  • Conducting cognitive workload and situational awareness assessment  
  • Understanding decision making in critical tasks and environments  
  • Recording live view and after-action review videos  
  • Improving usability and system design 


"Understanding human behavior will benefit aviation safety, space exploration, and enable safe, autonomous flight."
