Description

Highlights the human components of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems, their interactions with the technology and each other, and the implications of human capabilities and limitations for the larger system

  • Considers human factors issues associated with RPAS, but within the context of a very large system of people, other vehicles, policy, safety concerns, and varying applications
  • Chapters have been contributed by world class experts in HSI and those with operational RPAS experience
  • Considers unintended consequences associated with taking a more myopic view of this system
  • Examines implications for practice, policy, and research
  • Considers both civil and military aspects of RPAS
