trustworthiness (which may change over time). A thorough understanding of the capabilities of each component as well as how the components work together is required to permit pilots and controllers to develop an appropriate level of trust in the system. In addition, since these new systems are specifically intended as safety enhancements and may also be used to increase usage of airport surface capacity, it is particularly important that controllers and pilots are able to respond effectively to system failures, including those that regress the system to lower-levels of automation.
