In this paper we explore the potential uses of human factors modelling techniques (descriptive, predictive and process models) in a range of activities involving mini-UAS (Unmanned Aerial vehicle Systems). The primary interest lies in defining the information and decision chains that relate to the use of intelligence from these assets, and the impact that configuring these chains in different ways might have on overall performance. Our interest lies in contrasting different configurations of command structures to see how workload, situation awareness and decision making can be affected, and how intelligence from UASs can be incorporated into Network-Enabled systems.
