Abstract
ASI PROPOSES A RESEARCH METHODOLOGY FOR THE PURPOSE OF MAXIMIZING THE SEARCH FOR AND THE EXTRACTION OF NEW CONCEPTS AND INNOVATIONS IN THE AREA OF EXTENDING THE CAPABILITIES OF THE HUMAN IN AERONAUTICAL/ SPACE SYSTEMS THROUGH DESIGNING, CONDUCTING, RUNNING, AND MONITORING OF A FUTURISTS/RESEARCH WORKSHOP. THE PROPOSED METHODOLOGY INCLUDES: 1) THE USE OF ASI DESIGNED OR REFINED FUTURIST TOOLS AND METHODS TO STIMULATE THINKING ABOUT FUTURE POSSIBILITIES AND TO EXTRACT NEW INFORMATION RELATIVE TO FUTURE POSSIBILITIES; 2) INVITE PARTICIPANTS ENCOMPASSING PROFESSIONAL FUTURISTS, SCIENCE FICTION WRITERS, INDUSTRIAL MANAGERS/SCIENTISTS/ENGINEERS, AND AIR FORCE EXPERTS; 3) A FREE-WHEELING STRUCTURED WORKSHOP FORMAT ORGANIZED TO MAXIMIZE THE GENERATION, EXTRACTION, AND EXCHANGE OF NEW IDEAS, AND 4) TO FOCUS ON "EXTENDED MAN" FUTURES -FOR EXAMPLE, TO CONSIDER THE HUMAN AS A "BLACK BOX" IN A WEAPON SYSTEM EXTENDED AND ENHANCED VIA AI ENHANCED, BIO-BODY ARMOR SYSTEMS, "VIRTUAL COCKPIT" ENVIRONMENTS, BIOMUX SYSTEMS, BIO-GENETIC ENGINEERING, NEW MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY IMMUNIZED/CONDITIONED/PROTECTED SYSTEMS, ETHNOTRONIC SYSTEMS, ETHNOBIOGENETIC SYSTEMS, AND BIO-MOLECULAR "COMPUTER" SYSTEMS.
