We took a sample of about 60 types of high severity runway incursions. Over 20% involved sudden, high energy runway conflicts (also called SHERC).

A SHERC is a scenario involving a runway conflict in which the time available to prevent a collision is likely to be less than the time required.

In a recent study, we have identified 12 barriers such as memory aids, visual vigilance and precise...
