What is the meaning of Situation Awareness?

Decision-makers are drawn to certain situational cues and not to others because of their situation awareness. This pattern matching process happens all the time, and these responses to the environment are automatic. Situation awareness is one basis for what we call ‘intuition’: recognising things without knowing how we do the recognising (Klein, 1998: 33). Klein’s claim is that situation awareness grows out of experience.
