The software developed under the proposed research can support Automated Discovery of Previously Unknown Precursors to Aviation Safety, Automation Design Tools, Assurance of Flight Critical Systems, Advanced Flight-Deck Operations and Human-Computer Interactions tasks under the Aviation Safety Program. Additional programs to which the software can contribute, include Unmanned Aerial Systems integration into the National Air Space, the Automax concept, and Single Pilot Operations under the NextGen Airspace Operations program.
The technologies and the software developed under the proposed research will be applicable to FAA for certifying future interface. Analysis methodologies developed under the proposed research will be useful to NTSB in flight accident investigation by detecting cognitive mismatches in a flight data record. These technologies can be used by companies developing flight deck technologies for use in the next-generation commercial and military aircraft. Other applications of these technologies are in the design of hospital equipment and human-robot workstations.
