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 March of 2011 to December of 2011 of this Baseline and Multimodal UAV GCS Interface Design. The report discusses the pilot testing of the baseline condition of the experiment. In addition, the progress of the multimodal display design is provided. The implementation of the multimodal display design to the experiment is also addressed.
