Abstract Advances in automation technologies and their application in supervisory control systems such as unmanned vehicles places an increased demand on the information provided to the supervising operator and the manner in which that information is presented and accessed. The Supervisory Control Information Management Research program was initiated to investigate the issues associated with the role information plays in the coordination of supervisory control systems. A series of investigative studies were conducted focusing on four key aspects of information management that have emerged in the context of ongoing supervisory control systems development, particularly unmanned aerial vehicles. These four key areas include: Mission and Sensor Management, Information Scalability, Information Visualization and Multi-Modal Interfaces. The current report documents the results and findings of these studies and their implications for future supervisory control interface research and development.
