Abstract : To improve operational effectiveness for the Canadian Forces (CF), the Joint Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Surveillance Target Acquisition System (JUSTAS) project is acquiring a medium altitude, long-endurance (MALE) uninhabited aerial vehicle (UAV). In support of the JUSTAS project, Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) Toronto is investigating the human factors issues of UAV ground control stations (GCS) interfaces for UAVs and exploring possible solutions using multimodal displays. This progress report provides an update project from January of 2012 to March of 2012 of this Baseline and Multimodal UAV GCS Interface Design. The report discusses the running of the baseline condition of the experiment for the nave participants and participants with flying experience. The design and the implementation of the multimodal display are also addressed.
