Guidance for Autonomous Systems (A51_A11L.UAS.92)

Industry desires to automate many types of UAS operations to the extent possible. This research will explore automation failures applicable to UAS operations. Researchers will classify the various types of automation failures in order to better assess automation risks and areas of automated design that require special attention. Operational constraints and limitations of UAS design will also be assessed as part of the overall risk management approach. Generalized design guidance and best engineering practices will be developed. Specific design guidance and recommendations will be proposed for a few key areas of UAS automated design that require special attention. Research findings will be shared with an industry standards body.
