Research Institution
U.S. Army Aviation Soldiers continue to support full spectrum operations across the globe from stability and support operations in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom to preparation for Major Combat Operations on the Korean peninsula while confronting an ever increasing challenge of information systems overload. As the Army Aviation transitions to the glass cockpit with advent of the CH-47F, UH-60M and AH-64D Block III, the Army has recognized the opportunity to apply cognitive decision aiding tools to provide the Army aviator with more situational awareness of the ground combat environment, thereby improving combat effectiveness without degrading the safety of the platform or its occupants. To aid the Army aviator with this flood of mission and system data, Applied Systems Intelligence, Inc. (ASI) will develop and demonstrate an innovative software capability called the Situational Awareness Fusion Enhancement Aid (SAFE-Aid). This software aiding system is an associate, a human-centered intelligent system built from the start to be an intelligent team member for its human counterparts. More than just an assistant, an associate is made to have a deep understanding of its human team mates, as well as their missions, their systems and their environment. Emphasis during Phase I is on rapid demonstration and preparation for flight certification on Army rotorcraft.
