  Design- MIDAS
  MIDAS, as we currently know it, is the product of over 20 years of joint development between the US Army, the NASA AMES Research Center, the San Jose State University Research Foundation, and Sterling Software/QSS/Perot Systems Inc. Current funding for MIDAS comes from the Aviation Safety and the Airspace Systems Safe and Efficient Surface Operations (SESO) Programs.

As an exploratory development program, the MIDAS software has progressed through thirteen development phases, each culminating in detailed review demonstrations. Recent efforts have included expanding the depth and range of human performance models (memory, attention, situation awareness, etc.), and applying the system to specific platforms and operational problems. While MIDAS fundamentally remains a research program to advance human performance modeling, considerable emphasis has been placed on usability, software standards, and collaborations with users.

Looking to the future, MIDAS will serve an integral role in our return to Space by increasing the effectiveness of our prototyping and modeling capabilities in complex operational environments. Ultimately, we are working to ensure that NASA missions are carried out safely and efficiently.
