Synthetic cognitive agents often require an understanding of the
environment's state and the ability to predict the effects of actions on
the environment and self. Bestowing agents with situational aware-
ness may increase understanding of domain dynamism, action selec-
tion, and action execution. While contemporary architectures have
made considerable strides, present architectures have yet to achieve
human levels of situational awareness. If future architectures are to
realize high levels of situational awareness, agent designs may neces-
sitate certain features. This paper presents an initial exploration into
the features and design components required to realize cognitive agent
situational awareness.
