Autonomy & Human Machine Teaming

Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) have demonstrated the ability to provide significant surveillance and observation data when compared with current manned aircraft approaches (e.g., persistence, access, range), but the demand for RPA services is outpacing the supply of aircraft, personnel, and control infrastructure. The trajectory of this demand indicates that the supply may not be able to catch up without a significant decrease in the operator to system advanced cognitive systems, military planning applications, and collaborative human-machine teaming.
