The US Army Research Laboratory s Human Research and Engineering Directorate assesses crewstation design for new and upgraded US Army Aviation aircraft during simulations and operational testing. The assessments are conducted to identify and eliminate human factors design problems. As part of these evaluations, the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter has been a primary focus with respect to crewstation design changes. One of the significant design changes for the Apache crewstation is the integration of unmanned aircraft system UAS control. This study investigates the feasibility of controlling multiple UASs from the cockpit of an AH-64 Apache helicopter by examining scientific studies conducted on multi-UAS control that relate to operator and pilot mental workload.
