This document presents a Mission and Scenario Analysis which captures the nature of the UAV/UCAV domain within Canada. The information contained within this report will facilitate the continued development of the knowledge−base associated with two emerging technology threads: UAV/UCAV devices and Intelligent/Adaptive Interfaces (IAIs). Two scenarios were produced as a result of this exercise with the intent to provide a baseline facility for the development of an experimental landscape for the evaluation of IAI constructs. The UAV operational context was utilized primarily because of its intense, yet bounded, command and control architecture. The original scenario was developed for DRDC to provide a framework to illustrate the elements described in the mission analysis and to identify the unique mission−critical operational activities performed by the UAV MCE team on an airborne platform. Additional requirements identified by CFEC warranted the creation of a next generation mission scenario that mimics elements of the upcoming Atlantic Littoral ISR Experiment (ALIX) as well as portray potential Canadian Forces UAV capabilities. Both scenarios are based on the same type of mission (counter drug operations) composed from a similar sequence of events. The primary deviation is the employment of a family of UAVs (MALE, Tactical, and Mini UAVs) in the next generation scenario as opposed to solely a MALE UAV in the original scenario.
