International audience; This text aims to present a study which deals with mental workload evaluation during task execution. It is focused on the Air Traffic Controllers working situation. In this document, we mainly introduce an experiment which has been conducted in a French En-Route air traffic center with the participation of Air Traffic Controllers. Four principal experiment characteristics are detailed: the experiment procedure, the working situation elaborated for our experimentation, the nature of the task achieved by participants, and the technique chosen to analyze mental workload felt by operators. We finally present the main results from our first data analysis which seem to confirm major observations known in the field of air traffic control, as well as, mental workload study field.
