Abstract:

An IMPRINT model was developed to predict a pilots cognitive workload levels and mission performance in a simulated environment when interacting with the cockpit and multiple UAVs. This research concluded that peaks in workload occur for the pilot during periods of high communications load and this communication may be degraded or delayed during air-to-air engagements. Nonetheless, autonomous control of the UAVs through Vector Steering, Pilot Directed Engagements, and Tactical Battle Management would enable pilots to control up to 3 UAVs and their own aircraft against 4 enemy targets,while maintaining acceptable pilot cognitive workload in an air operation.
