Abstract:

Increasing complexity of sensors, weapons and countermeasures in combat aircraft is introducing a requirement for computer aids to the crew both for data manipulation and in more intelligent tasks which have hitherto been considered the province of man rather than machine. British Aerospace is pursuing a programme of Research and Development of such computer aids - Mission Management Aids - to assist the pilot in the management of combat missions. As well as algorithms of conventional type, taking advantage of the enormous and apparently continuing advances in processing hardware, many such aids will need to exploit new concepts from software engineering and artificial intelligence. We have these new tools by which we expect that we can meet the new requirements. However, many of the conventional solutions are new to our experience, at least within the stringent requirements of real time airborne computing, and many of the new tools are only partly developed or partly understood. This is especially true for some Tactical MMAs.
