Abstract : A flight validation study was performed to further address issues related to a remote operator's interface with an automatic landing system for remotely piloted vehicles (RPV). Specifically, remote control modes and a supervisory override capability were examined. Additionally, pilot comments pertaining to ROS design and Remote Operator roles were obtained. Throughout the flight validation, alternative control modes were implemented and used to perform remote control of an RPV during landing. (Author)
