Abstract: Air Traffic Control (ATC) is a service extremely vital in providing advisory support, especially in navigation, for all the pilots and ensuring the safety of aircrafts both in the air and on ground. A key component of this service is to organise and expedite the flow of traffic and prevent conflicts or collisions. The objective of this study is to investigate the relationship between the usage of an automated conflict resolution aid and the performance analysis of the resulting ATC service provided. Thirteen university undergraduate students took part in this study, providing ATC services on an ATC simulator. All the participants were required to go through five individual sessions, lasting an hour for each. These sessions include briefing and training the participants, and analysing the performance of ATC service provided without conflict resolution aid, with perfect conflict resolution aid and with imperfect conflict resolution aid. The performance is analysed in three terms of Conflict Resolution Time, Percentage of Conflict Resolved and Number of Error Count. The result of this study shows that there are significant improvements in conflict resolution time and percentage of conflict resolved when automated confliction resolution aid was used, with the perfect conflict resolution aid producing the best results. However, the usage of conflict resolution aid did not result in significant improvement in terms of the error count.
