“The perception of elements in the environment within a volume of time and space, the comprehension of their meaning, and the projection of their status in the near future” (Endsley, 1995, pg 36, Toward a Theory of Situation Awareness in Dynamic Systems).

Situational Awareness is a critical step in decision making. Situational Awareness is our recognition of current events, ability to determine what those events mean, and what are the potential outcomes of those events. Information is needed to achieve Situational Awareness. However, there is a balancing point in the amount of information; too little or too much may cause a lack in capability to make recognize events or determine their outcomes.
