This paper describes our experience in capturing, using a formal specification language, a model of the knowledge-intensive domain of oceanic air traffic control. This model is intended to form part of the requirements specification for a decision support system for air traffic controllers. We give an overview of the methods we used in analysing the scope of the domain, choosing an appropriate formalism, developing a domain model, and validating the model in various ways. Central to the method was the development of a formal requirements engineering environment which provided automated tools for model validation and maintenance.
