Abstract
The Canadian Forces Experimentation Center (CFEC) conducted an experiment to examine whether the inclusion of a UAV into the current suite of surveillance technologies would improve the detection and integraton of vessels along a prescribed area of Canada's Pacific coastline. A sub-goal of this experiment, the results of which are presented in the present technical note, was to examine and compare the situation awareness, perceived workload, and ratings of trust in automation amongst surveillance technology. Although the data yielded inconclusive results with regard to the impact of UAV technology on situation awareness, in general, the data revealed that perceived workload and trust in automation are improved when UAV technology is integrated into the extant surveillance system.
