A process is described for selecting the subset of internal models needed to perform situation assessment and organizing them in a representation we designate a mental space. A cognitive framework is proposed that supports the interacting processes of mental space construction and situation assessment. This framework is consistent with a set of design principles derived from a range of psychological and physiological evidence. The framework describes processes for assessing situations from noisy, incomplete, and incrementally arriving sensations.
