Synthetic cognitive agents (SCA) often require an under-
standing of their environment and the ability to predict how
their actions will affect both the world and their internal sta-
tus. Bestowing SCAs with Situational Awareness (SA) may
improve this understanding of the dynamism within a do-
main, action selection, and action execution. The focus of
our research is to a) form a list of agent architecture features
required to achieve and maintain SA and b) implement and
test the effectiveness of these features at developing SA.
Before SA can be achieved in SCAs, the system require-
ments for its creation need to be determined. SA is not a
process in and of itself but a conceptual grouping of pro-
cesses and phenomena within the human cognition (Flach
1995). It is improbable that a single sound and complete al-
gorithm will ever be found that generates perfect SA across
