Abstract:

The purpose of this project was to continue our research on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles UAVs and their usefulness during a response to a crisis situation. In previous work we have shown that both the video feed and the location of the UAV can be displayed in a command center to increase the situational awareness of commanders. The research presented here will build on our previous work and improve the situational awareness tool available to the commander. This tool is referred to as the UAV Situational Awareness Tool UAVSAT.
