Abstract:

The continuous expansion of aerospace system requirements results in the ever increasing assignment of computing, logic and decision making functions to on-board digital computers. The need for man as an integral element in aerospace systems seems likely for the next decade. His role and the proper integration of man and machine for maximum system effectiveness will, however, require periodic re-examination in view of the growing capability of the machine to assume functions previously reserved for man. The report considers the current capabilities and potentials for automating manned aerospace systems, and described the tools currently available and under development for assigning system functions to man, machine and man and machine, so as to best satisfy aerospace system requirements and constraints.
