Support for Coordination Strategies in Envisioned Urban Air Mobility (UAM) Operations


To enable safe and scalable integration of UAM into the NASA there is a need for human-autonomy teaming that supports ad hoc coordination across a variety of operators, including Pilots in Command (PIC), UAS Service Suppliers (USS), Supplemental Data Service Providers (SDSP), and Air Traffic Management (ATM). Effective human-autonomy teaming becomes particularly critical when disturbances challenge nominal operations. The objective of this project is to characterize coordination strategies for UAM contingency management, specifically the effectiveness and appropriateness of strategies for coordination in relation to contextual factors such as workload, urgency, and common ground for various UTM/UAM roles.
