This paper presents a novel visual representation of UAVs' characteristics and Levels of Autonomy (LOAs), which allows the mission commander to obtain a sufficient understanding of each UAV's capability and varying LOA in search scenarios. Results illustrating the effect of the visualisation on test subjects' situation awareness will be presented.
