Future conflicts may involve composite striker packages composed of manned and unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) supervised by mission controllers. Since situation awareness (SA) contributes to and is a crucial part of mission success, significant effort is now being placed on developing new technologies that have the potential of increasing SA for the mission controller. This paper describes the design and development of an on-line situation assessment model for unmanned air vehicles that is based on human behavior representation (HBR). The essential feature of this model its organization around the skilled human’s situation assessment behavior in a complex multi-task environment. Simulation results are presented for a SEAD mission.
