The automation systems have been prompting the improvement of capability of the Air Traffic Management (ATM) system. However, there remains substantial debate over the role of air traffic controller (ATCO), in particular, controller’s activities that are closely related to the operation safety in both current ATM system and future ATM system. As a matter of fact, researchers and operational experts have long been sought the way to measure and predict controllers’ activities. With a few exceptions, most of existing works are incapable of predicting controllers’ activities correctly. The difficulty roots in the inadequate knowledge of the dynamics of air traffic controllers. In the context of transforming of the ATM system, there is a need for a generalized description on air traffic controllers’ activities. Recent human dynamics research has unmasked astonishing statistical characteristics in human activities which indicate there might exist a universal law that governs human activities. Building upon the previous research on controllers, this thesis analyzes air traffic controllers’ dynamics from human dynamics perspective using a complex system approach.
