The term “unmanned” is misleading when used in the context of UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). UAV operations involve plenty of people ranging from those in the UAV ground control station and Air Operations Center to those in nearby manned aircraft. Analogies of UAV operations to manned flight or air traffic control tasks misrepresent the complexity of UAV operations. Trends toward reduced staffing of operations, increased number of vehicles to control, and integration with other air operations and combat functions are all associated with critical human factors issues. This workshop follows on the heels of the highly successful First Annual Human Factors of UAVs Workshop. The objective of this workshop is to unite the human factors research community with the UAV operational community and UAV developers to identify the critical human factors challenges associated with UAV operations and provide a venue for disseminating peer-reviewed research results in this growing area. This year, in addition to research papers focusing on human factors issues pertinent to UAVs, we are especially interested in hearing perspectives from UAV pilots/operators and in demonstrations of new UAV technology especially pertaining to more useful and useable UAV systems.
