Abstract : This report was produced in support of DRDCs Manned Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Interaction (MUAVI) Study which intends to evaluate the utility of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) when used in concert with a manned aircraft in a manner such that both aircraft can influence each others actions. The Objective of this report is to discover and document manned unmanned teaming (MUMT) programs, Trials and experiments that have taken place in the past ten years. To identify tests, demonstrations and programs, searches were conducted using a mix of scientific and technical databases, military databases, and business and market research databases. In total, around 200 papers were found. Each of these was reviewed and the names and details of any programs mentioned were noted. Once a complete list of relevant programs was compiled, searches were conducted using Google to identify news articles or press releases that could fill in any details the technical papers did not provide. A total of thirteen (13)major programs were identified along with a number of technologies, and one lab devoted to MUMT.
