In this report, the development of an interface PWP (Pseudo pilot Working Position), after 3 months internship in the research group ICARUS is documented. The RTS (Real Time Simulations) are one of the bases of research of ATM (Air Traffic Management), allowing simulators recreate real scenarios to be studied. The design of a new PWP, is because eDEP, one of the RTS most widely used for studies of air traffic control, do not have a proper design for the PWP, since it focuses its studies on the CWP (Controller Working Position). The poor design, entails a reduction in the efficiency of pseudo pilots, and the prone to do human error. With the new design created, it is intended to increase user efficiency and reduce the rate of human error. Tests have been performed at different profiles of individuals to assess and determine the viability of the product. The report documents the current version of the application, and comparisons thereof with eDEP and the results of test.
