Automation Being Driven In The Military

Readers know my appreciation for the vision and applications developed by DARPA is unbounded, and they have struck again, this time with Aircrew Labor In-cockpit Automation System (Alias).

Think of it as replacing four of the five crewmen on our international bomber fleet, leaving the Pilot to be the Mission Coordinator.

Once again, the dr/dt of automation and artificial intelligence combine to replace humans.

The system is projected to be scalable up and down to be used in multiple platforms, to handle all components of a mission from takeoff to wheels down, and goes out to bid on May 15.
