Planning for the interaction of humans with systems is increasingly challenging as more complex systems are designed. Other fields have developed techniques, such as Human-Centered Design and Human Factors Engineering, to help address these challenges. This research examines how techniques from Human-Centered Design and Human Factors Engineering can be integrated with Model-Based Systems Engineering into a Human-Systems Integration Architecture Framework. This framework can be used to supplement existing architecture frameworks commonly used within Systems Engineering. The research discussed here focuses first on integrating Human-Centered Design and Human Factors Engineering with Model-Based Systems Engineering and then on identifying useful viewpoints and aspects and formulating those within an architecture framework, the Human-Systems Integration Architecture Framework. The Human-Systems Integration Architecture Framework is demonstrated on an example system, Watchful Phantom, a system that integrates a remotely piloted (unmanned), aerial surveillance vehicle with a ground-based analyst and a ground-based interdiction team. Watchful Phantom has been chosen as the example system based off similar systems used to explore Human-Systems Integration within the literature. The Human-Systems Integration Architecture Framework and the associated views and viewpoints are described and explored in the context of Watchful Phantom.
