This paper describes a technique for measuring situation awareness (SA) referred to as QUASATM (QUantitative Analysis of Situation Awareness). QUASATM uses the principles of signal detection theory to assess situation awareness. The technique is designed to provide objective measures of individual SA, dynamic SA and different components of SA. The paper describes the theoretical basis of QUASATM and its application in a simulated command and control environment.
