The talk is aimed at overviewing studies conducted for supporting human decisions in avionics. The challenge is in finding the balance in surveillance tasks between human and machine control to meet real-time deadlines. The problem can be tackled in two ways: rational versus naturalistic. In the first, the system offers the set of calculated solutions and lets user to choose the best. In this case, a decision is prepared by the system and an individual selects from the proposed set. In the second, a decision is made by a human and the system provides the data that influence the decision. In avionics, an air traffic controller is responsible for decision consequences. Therefore, the major requirement for supporting systems is not to exclude this individual from decision making process. The studies we present follow the second approach which deals with the models of human cognitive processes, balancing recognition and interpretation to provide for proper situational awareness. The human cognitive processes impact requirements for visualisation modes and visualization methods. To illustrate the merits, we present examples of prototypes developed to validate the proposed approaches.
