Abstract : The study described herein was an operator-in-the-loop assessment supporting the development of a Sense and Avoid (SAA) display that enables effective teaming of an Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) operator with an advanced SAA maneuver algorithm to safely avoid proximal air traffic. This study examined performance differences between candidate SAA display configurations and automation thresholds while UAS operators controlled a UAS through airspace including several proximal aircraft.
