In this volume a Human Systems Integration (HSI) perspective is taken in regard to Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems that considers humans as part of a large and interconnected system of technology, humans, and other systems. The history of HSI in the context of RPAS is one of neglect. RPAS for military use were developed as experimental platforms without consideration of HSI and fielded early before HSI could be addressed even as an afterthought. In this chapter we define our terminology, describe the breadth of types and applications of RPAS and offer an overview of upcoming chapters.
