Ten years ago, MITRE/CAASD built a realtime, Human-In-The-Loop (HITL) research laboratory. The focus of this lab is integration and human factors research for the air traffic control and aviation communities. The last ten years have been illuminating in terms of the evolution of laboratory capabilities, infrastructure, and corporate culture. This paper will describe the laboratory environment, its history and vision, and will also provide some examples of how distributed simulation technology has been applied, and continues to evolve, in a real-world HITL simulation environment serving a broad range of research needs.
