UAS became essential part of military equipment as their use contributes to an increase in mission efficiency and safety of military personnel. Due to the lack of knowledge about specific demands created by operating UAS, a study was conducted to empirically analyse aptitude criteria and to develop specific requirement profiles for UAS operating personnel. For this purpose experienced UAS operators answered the Fleishman Job Analysis Survey. First results suggest that general requirements irrespective of operating position as well as position specific requirements can be deduced. Differences between systems and comparison with operators of manned military aviation will be reported. The results can contribute valuable information about relevant human factors which should be considered in personnel selection of future UAS operators.
