The purpose of this study was to establish a validated trust in automation manipulation to use in future research. Specifically, this experiment compared a high reliability system to a low reliability with the intention of creating significant and meaningful differences in system trust and system use. Twenty-two unmanned aircraft system operators were assigned to one of two high and low system reliability conditions of a hypothetical Target Identification System TIS.
