Pilots doing a safety check

Aviation and tactical training

For professionals working in high-stress, high-stakes environments, a complete awareness of the surroundings is vital to making quick decisions correctly. Special training in both real-world and simulated environments helps prepare these staff to operate in a wide range of complex scenarios.


Benefits of eye tracking

Eye tracking provides deeper insight into human behavior, helping you understand how individuals or teams perform simulated or naturalistic tasks. It also helps uncover shortcomings in systems and processes. You can learn to:

  • Optimize training processes to improve human performance
  • Conduct cognitive workload and situational awareness assessment
  • Understand decision making in high-stress tasks and environments
  • Record live view and after-action review videos
  • Improve usability and system design

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