Abstract : The coordination of actions and interactions between unmanned autonomous systems, manned systems, and a command group will be essential to accomplishing future missions. In this type of complex command and control scenario, operators will be subjected to vast amounts of information, resulting in information overload and loss of situation awareness. It is critical that designers develop predictive models of human and system performance to evaluate the adequacy of a system s design to satisfy specific mission requirements and ensure adequate operator performance. The effort described here applies queueing theory to a complex unmanned simulation. Data analysis suggests that there are several interesting and important areas of research that can be explored in order to improve the predictability of system performance using queueing theory.
