Our objectives in this paper are to: (1) explicate the link between UAS accidents and coordination, and (2) to provide prescriptive guidelines for improving coordination in distributed UAS. To accomplish these goals we will review the literature on team coordination, examine how distribution impacts that process, identify the areas in which coordination plays a critical role in UAS incidents and accidents, and conclude with some prescriptions for improving UAS team coordination.
