The U.S. Armys Future Vertical Lift FVL program is developing a new fleet of aircraft that is set to replace the UH-60 Black Hawk and the AH-64 Apache. These new aircraft will include autonomous systems and have increased capabilities of speed, maneuverability, and operational range. With this increase in capability, there will be an increased overload in Aviators cognitive state leading to mishaps and accident fatalities. Operator state monitoring through psychophysiological indices and biomarkers are used to identify cognitive states. Subject matter experts completed two rounds of a Delphi-style survey to determine the reliability of selected sensors and biomarkers when incorporated in aviator operational environments.
