Abstract:

A large amount of research is being conducted to develop and apply Machine Intelligence MI technology to aerospace applications. Machine Intelligence research covers the technical areas under the headings of Artificial Intelligence, Expert Systems, Knowledge Representation, Neural Networks and Machine Learning. This list is not all inclusive. It has been suggested that this research will dramatically alter the design of aerospace electronics systems because MI technology enables automatic or semi-automatic operation and control. Some of the application areas where MI is being considered include sensor cueing, data and information fusion, commandcontrol communicationsintelligence, navigation and guidance, pilot aiding, spacecraft and launch operations, and logistics support for aerospace electronics. For many routine jobs, it appears that MI systems could totally displace human operators. In other situations, MI systems would provide screened and processed data as well as recommended courses of action to human operators. MI technology will enable electronic systems or subsystems which adapt or correct for errors and many of the paradigms have parallel implementation or use intelligent algorithms to increase the speed of response to near real time. This symposium presents the results of efforts applying MI technology to aerospace electronics applications. The symposium focuses on applications research and development to determine the types of MI paradigms which are best suited to the wide variety of aerospace electronics applications.
