ABSTRACT: Wilderness search and rescue (WiSAR) requires thousands of hours of search
over large and complex terrains. Mini-UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) may dramati-
cally improve WiSAR search efficiency. Early field trials in UAV-enabled WiSAR indicated
a need to improve the human-UAV interaction, the coordination between the UAV and
ground search resources, and the UAV technology. A cognitive task analysis was con-
ducted to inform the design of the UAV technology, the associated interface, and the
roles and responsibilities associated with effectively integrating the technology into
the existing WiSAR response. Two cognitive task analysis techniques were employed:
