Abstract:

The pace and complexity of modern air warfare are reaching the point where advanced computer aids are becoming essential to assist the air crew in the aircraft and the commander on the ground in performing functions that hitherto had been considered to be their prerogative. This Symposium considered the advances in and practical application of advanced computer aids in terms of its impact on avionic systems design in both manned and unmanned aircraft and weapons systems and on total air warfare command and control environment including communications, electronic warfare, intelligence gathering and operational planning. Computers are already used extensively in the operation and control of specific types of equipment, such as advanced weapon systems, surveillance radars, electronic warfare and communications systems. However, in the broader context there are still many areas which rely heavily on human decision making and where the use of computers will have considerable impact in the future. The successful application of computers should provide improved effectiveness, flexibility and and reliability of both men and equipment resulting in a saving of resources and personnel.
