Introduction: This paper presents two studies that explore the implications of NextGen technologies for pilot/controller information exchange and coordinated decision making. Method: In Study 1 five participative focus groups were conducted with human factors experts. In Study 2 fifteen interviews were conducted with air traffic controllers. Both studies employed a thematic analysis. Results and Discussion: Results from Study 1 suggest that changes to pilot and controller information acquisition will alter rather than reduce breakdowns in coordinated decision making. Study 2 identified some basic issues in information exchange with NextGen technologies and suggests that some important non-operational information will be lost. Conclusion: The two studies highlight some important challenges that need to be carefully considered as the NextGen technologies move towards maturity. Language: en
