HF ISSUES IN COMBAT ID
 

Human Factors Issues In Combat Identification May 13-14, 2008 & Human Factors Issues in Imagery Analysis Using UAVs May 14-15, 2008

These two Air Force Research Laboratory sponsored workshops were integrated into one, 3-day event. Combining the workshops provided an excellent forum in which to discuss human factors issues of the related topics of combat identification and unmanned vehicle imagery analysis. We hope that the two workshops provided participants with the convenient opportunity to expand networking circles and further intellectual stimulation.
 

Workshop Title:

Human Factors Issues in Combat Identification (followed by Human Factors Issues in Imagery Analysis using UAVs)

Dates:

May 13-15, 2008

Location:

The Gold Canyon Golf Resort – Gold Canyon, AZ

Workshop Objective:

This workshop explored human factors research that can be beneficial to weapon system developers, combat trainers, warfighters and the human factors research community.

Workshop Sponsor:

Air Force Research Laboratory, Human Effectiveness Directorate

Workshop Chair:

Dr. Dee Andrews, Directorate Senior Scientist for Training and Aviation Psychology, Human Effectiveness Directorate
