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
