Talk: UAS Handling Qualities and Pilot Workload Assessment

12:00-1:00 PM
FAA William J. Hughes Technical Center
Research Development & Human Factors Laboratory
Conference Room

Ben Swan received his PhD in Engineering Psychology at New Mexico State University in 2010. While there, he worked on an Air Force Research Laboratory contract with NMSU and the Physical Science Laboratory at NMSU. His work on the contract involved developing a quantitative measure to evaluate Unmanned Aircraft System performance and pilot workload. Dr. Swan also worked with Human-in-the-Loop simulators in an early attempt to demonstrate UAS integration into the National Air Space.  For the past four years, Dr. Swan has been working at the Transportation Security Laboratory, first with Dr. Josh Rubinstein in the Human Factors Lab, and then as a team member with Independent Test and Evaluation.

His talk was on UAS Handling Qualities and Pilot Workload Assessment and how he started developing a measure for UAS handling qualities.
