Each autopilot being developed by the Pentagon will replace up to five crew members

48
Specialists from the Pentagon's laboratory - the agency DARPA, as reported by the site gearmix with a link to the site wired.com, is currently engaged in the development of a new generation of autopilot. In the future, this device will be able to replace up to five crew members in military aircraft. The man-pilot at the same time, will perform the role of "mission supervisor", and will be able to give commands from the touchscreen.


Each autopilot being developed by the Pentagon will replace up to five crew members


The development of the autopilot is carried out under the ALIAS program. It is a mobile complex, which, with the necessary settings, will provide support to aircraft during all phases of flight. Moreover, in case of emergency situations in the air, the system will be able to perform all the necessary actions, thereby reducing the burden on the pilot. According to experts DARPA, the use of autopilot will significantly increase the safety of flights and improve the efficiency of missions.

According to the agency, they use the latest advances in autopilot in their developments. As a result, the researchers plan to get a highly adaptable automated system that will have the ability to move from one plane to another. At the same time, it will be able to control the fulfillment of the mission on all aircraft from takeoff to landing. All this will occur using the touch interface, as well as using voice commands.

It is worth recalling that a few months ago, US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel during the Pentagon meeting announced his intention to cut funding for the agency. It is planned to use more economical technologies, as well as a reduction in the number of personnel and equipment.

      Poking with your gloved finger on the screen, and not on the button, is to hit completely wrong targets. I'm afraid not only drones will start making mistakes with the new autopilot. If only this "tachi" fashion did not pass to us

      Amerikos simply don’t want their soldiers to die, or there’s a huge amount of smoke rising inside the country, and drones and other garbage fly themselves, they kill who they want, and there’s no way ordinary Americans are doing what their government is doing, plus on their TV set tales tell. It turns out like in a family, the Father works as a killer and his snickering children do not care about this and they are even proud of it, but when they begin to die one at a time, they will quickly remember everything to dad, and he will be forced to punish and keep them in check. Like that has already begun.

      Western society is simply very intolerant of losses during wars. So they try to make the cars fight, and people are far away. On the one hand, it is commendable, on the other, it is only possible to fight like this with the Papuans with bows, with a modern army - "Khibin" will come to all toys. laughing

      Is a ship with autopilot news? How many worked on civilian ships, there are autopilots by default everywhere ..... The Japanese back in the 90s wanted to build a series of automatic ships operated without the participation of people (the mooring team threw a helicopter on the way to the port). But the union forbade them to use such vessels, so as not to deprive sailors of work.

      There are pluses - it will come in handy in civil aviation and will bring its effectiveness to a new level.

      Indeed, by and large, most of today's civilian technologies came from military laboratories.

      And from the 1 \ 8 side of the land, I would like to see not gearworm, but a competitive analogue.
      If you pretend to be a great power, please be in line with today's achievements and results, and not with memories of the past.
      Progress has begun, but this is not a reason to relax, there is still a lot of hard and hard work, and it needs to be done honestly.
      It's time to finally spur technological advances on the competition, as was the case in the 60.

    Drones are good, but when wisely and not so!
    Here is an example of PAK-FA with a pilot in the circle of 4 drones and in reconnaissance, and it’s not a pity for a rocket if anything is substituted !!

        How do you imagine that? To get started, try riding two bicycles at the same time and in different directions. Then increase the number of bikes to five. As you master, you can assume that you have taken the first step to control five fighters alone.

      everything is correct - such a concept, because if the automatic replacing the crew refuses, then the flight engineer has nothing to do, of course, if he is not a fan of "atmonaut fly" - horizontal piloting with a body without an open parachute ..

      They need normal air defense. And the air force. Drone, it seems to me easier to bring down. There is no live pilot; he will not be able to adequately maneuver during an attack (missile or fighter). Or, what has already been done, an interception of control.

    The slightest failure in the electronics will lead to such a disaster that all these autopilots will immediately be dumped in the trash. A small Russian plane recently flew over a large American ship, all the electronics died, the ship went blind, deaf and paralyzed.

    So he imagined: a combat turn or a missile defense with 7-8 g and a pilot on the verge of losing consciousness frantically pokes at the touchscreen, trying to get to the right point on the screen. More precisely, he tries to poke, overcoming overload.

            List the fighter models in which more than one person sits? Combat models, not combat training pairs.
            I still understand a similar statement for military transport aviation. That crew is big. Even for strategists with a sooo big stretch I admit. In the end, our Buran from space automatically sat down. But there was no versatility in aircraft models. As well as there was no complicated "power" maneuvering with turns and overloads. Like in real air combat. Do not consider a repeated approach to the runway equal to an anti-missile maneuver or aerobatics somersaults. Yes, surrounded by opponents. There was also no universality in terms of geographical and cartographic parameters - the position of the runway was known in advance and did not change according to the situation.
            And ... that ... nifiga this autopilot was not cheap to put on any flying pelvis, like MS Windows on any PC. And comparable universality is claimed. At least in the article.

It is clear to everyone that after some time robots will fight ... or do you want to go to tanks with drafts? think your reaction or information processing speed is enough ??? naive! I have no doubt that we are developing something similar, and I hope we can avoid the situation in Pakistan ... where drones - gods punish whom and where they want to answer without a chance. But at the expense of the interface ... apparently it’s just convenient and therefore use it instead of buttons all over the world.

        Any failure of the equipment is fraught with consequences. Reliability is a relative thing. It's like two engines - on the one hand, there is a greater likelihood of survival in the event of a failure, on the other hand, an increase in the number of incidents due to the complexity of the design.

    01.04.2002, 4: 30. Saudi Arabia. US Air Force Base.

    Lieutenant John Falcon for the last time waved his hand to his comrades and climbed into the cockpit. A sense of pride filled him. He would have been entrusted with such an honor!
    He learned about this from General Drake, who said: "You are entrusted
    Great honor, lieutenant. You will make the first combat flight on the latest
    top-secret aircraft F-22M.
    “Does M mean modified?” Falcon asked.
    “M stands for Microsoft,” the general replied. - the plane is completely
    refitted by these guys. They claim that now combat missions
    anyone can do it. But for the first time, we chose you as one of
    our best pilots. You will have to destroy the Iraqi nuclear
    Centre."
    "You can send condolences to Saddam now, sir," Falcon replied.
    The lieutenant habitually snapped the belts and only then noticed that
    the dashboard is noticeably different from the standard. Devices became
    smaller, but in the vacant place was a two-button mouse, for some reason
    metal. Falcon shrugged and turned on the general power.
    On a transparent frontal screen, against the background of the sky opened from the cockpit
    with rare clouds, the inscription appeared: Microsoft Winwars 2002. Then yourself
    engines started working and the flaps lowered into the take-off position.
    "Congratulations on your purchase of Winwars 2002!" Said the screen.
    the war will become much more convenient, your killability will decrease, and your target hit rate will increase!
    Tip of the day: lower the landing gear before landing. "
    “Eagle-1, take-off is allowed,” came the headset.
    “I haven't asked for it yet,” Falcon said.
    -And you don't need to. Plug "n" Play, ”explained ground control.
    The plane, rapidly gaining speed, rushed down the lane and soon
    was already in the air.
    "Winwars 2002 will now install your ammunition on a selected target," the system said. "Selected target: Iraqi nuclear center." For fun, Falcon clicked on the "edit" button and saw a long list, which, among other objects around the world, featured the White House and the base from which he had just flown. Falcon hurriedly pressed cancel.
    "Select the type of installation:
    Minimum - only bombs will be dropped on the object.
    Normal - bombs and missiles will be dropped on the object.
    Full - the entire plane will be dropped on the object "
    By default, the system offered the second option, and Folcon, cautiously
    glancing at the third, he decided not to argue with her.
    "The performance testing of your
    cars. Close your eyes to avoid injury when changing modes. "
    Engines roared in the afterburner, and Falcon's eyes really almost
    jumped out of their orbits from a monstrous overload. The real hell has begun:
    the plane was thrown in all directions, it fell off steep peaks and laid
    unthinkable turns ... Finally, the lieutenant came to his senses; darkness before eyes
    vanished, and he saw the mouse dangling all over the cabin again fall on its
    a place.
    "You are using a Lockheed F-22 with two engines
    Pratt-Whitney, ”the system said calmly. - maximum speed
    1451 miles per hour.
    Tip of the day: do not increase the turbine clock speed above
    value specified by the manufacturer. Estimated installation time - 0:34:16. "

    The bot is the same day, 4:52. The sky over Iraq.

    At the bottom of the screen, a blue bar with percentages slowly crawled. Inter system
    advertised Winwars for tanks, submarines and marines,
    and also promised everyone who purchased a version for planes a free package
    "Kamikaze 1.01". The change of pictures made Falcon sleepy; of
    his drowsiness was brought out by the sound of a buzzer. On the radar glowed
    green dot.
    "New device discovered: enemy aircraft!" - joyfully
    system reported. Falcon already wanted to carry out a standard combat turn, but here
    noticed the "Delete" button and clicked on it with the mouse.
    "Are you sure you want to delete the enemy plane?" - suspicious
    inquired the system.
    "Still would!" Falcon clicked "Yes." Iraqi fighter jet disappeared from
    the radar.
    "Buck quickly? - the lieutenant was surprised. - Well Microsoft gives!"
    He even respectfully began to study the advertising that appeared on the screen.
    Winwars for disabled pilots, however, distracted him from this activity
    rocket flying over the cabin itself. Folkon turned around in disbelief and saw
    Iraqi interceptor.
    "What are you, your mother ..." - exclaimed Falcon and only then saw that from
    the inconspicuous RecycleBin icon in the corner of the screen sticks out a drawn tail
    aircraft. The lieutenant fiercely clicked on the icon and pressed clear.
    “Are you sure you want to physically remove the enemy plane?
    recovery will be impossible, "the system warned.
    "YES!" Falcon barked, pounding the mouse. Sidewinder fell from under the wing
    and, leaving a white fluffy footprint, rushed towards the interceptor. Flashed
    a flash of explosion, and the burning debris of the enemy machine flew to the ground.
    However, it was too early to calm down. A flashing sound warned of a new
    danger.
    "New device discovered: surface-to-air missile!" - told
    the system fell into thought. In vain did the Falcon pound on the mouse, looking like
    an ominous point creeps toward the center of the radar. Finally, the system came out of a stupor:
    "I cannot find a driver for this device. Please insert the disc with
    driver and click OK. "
    With a curse, Falcon pressed Search.
    "Closest match: hand grenades," delighted him
    system. -Apply? "
    Folkon pulled the handle aside, retreating into a missile defense.
    Too late. The plane shuddered from the explosion. Hardly removing damaged
    car out of dive, the pilot clicked on the "System" button.
    Under the line "Left wing" shone with yellow triangles with
    exclamation marks "Aileron" and "Flap", but otherwise it is cheap
    got off. The blue bar, which continued to crawl below, already showed 82%,
    and he still had a chance to complete the task.
    The radar showed two more enemy aircraft, but they went up behind and
    Folkon was not particularly bothered. He knew that this Iraqi junk
    just don't catch up with the super-fast F-22.
    However, the planes were approaching. Falcon looked at him in bewilderment.
    speedometer and realized that its speed is rapidly falling.

    “What the hell ?!” the lieutenant exclaimed. “The engines are in order, and
    fuel is full! "Meanwhile the screen began to blink violently
    image of an hourglass. Instrument arrows moved short
    jerking, for a long time hardening in one position.
    "Not enough free memory," the system condescended to explain.
    Unload unnecessary tasks. "
    Falcon calls up a list of tasks, trying to understand what the names mean.
    Like winppl or v666apl and which ones are superfluous. Meanwhile, the engines are almost
    fell silent, the speed dropped to critical: just a little bit - and the plane will crash down.
    Stunned by such tactics of aerial combat, Iraqis whizzed past, alone
    left, another right, and, without leaving a stupor, collided in front of the nose
    Folkona.
    The lieutenant, meanwhile, found the line "Tracking
    adversary ", next to which in parentheses was written:" [Does not answer] ", and
    pressed
    "OK". The radar screen went out, but the plane began to pick up speed again.
    The blue bar already showed 99% ... now, finally, 100. Folkon with
    looked at the earth in bewilderment: the desert below was completely unlike
    He studied satellite photographs of the nuclear center. Seems to understand
    this is the system, because after the number 100% appeared 101 ... then 102 ...
    On 106, the screen was filled with blue, and the inscription appeared: "Error 000000e,
    called by the VXD0000 (0) module from the VXD0000 (0) module. Maybe normal
    continuation of the flight. You can press Eject to bail out, or
    any other key to continue. Attention: when bailout you
    you will lose all unsaved aircraft. "

    The Falcon was not going to catapult yet, especially as
    ahead, finally, a nuclear center appeared. Realizing that you rely on Microsoft
    no longer standing, the lieutenant prepared to carry out the bombing by hand. He led
    the plane descends, waiting until the mark of the guidance system overlaps
    on target. There is! Falcon pressed a button.
    Something scraped through and a new message popped up:
    "Bomboluk performed an illegal operation and will be closed."
    With a curse, Falcon pulled the handle toward himself to steer the car up again. But the plane continued to decline rapidly. The lieutenant frantically fumbled on the menus, looking for the cause.
    "The joystick is not detected," he finally read.
    Realizing that only a restart can restore the system to working condition, Falcon
    turned off and on the power of the remote.
    "The last flight was not completed correctly," the system told him.
    "Press any key to start checking the integrity of the aircraft."
    "To hell!" Falcon barked, pressing Cancel. Screensaver appeared
    Winwars 2002; the system slowly started to boot. To the ground were already
    a few hundred meters.
    "The system is booted in safe mode," the screen finally said.
    - In this mode, the functions of flight and use of weapons are disabled, you
    you can only drive around the airfield. "
    Realizing that he won’t have time to do anything else, Falcon
    "Eject", expecting the cockpit to be shot off, and then
    a powerful blow from below will throw him into the air. But instead appeared on the screen
    another question:
    "Are you sure you really want to eject?"
    "YES!!!" - Falcon yelled heart-rendingly, looking at the land rushing towards him.
    "Wait, preparations are underway for the bailout," - imperturbably
    informed the system and plunged into thought ...

    -Yes? - the dictator’s heavy gaze rested on the speaker’s face, and he hastily
    lowered his gaze. - In fact, unequal. Three against one, and their happiness,

    which saved, it is only the mercy of Allah.
    The general was covered in cold sweat. He understood that his now
    no mercy of Allah will save.
    “You have 30 seconds to make excuses,” Saddam said lazily.
    - Here! - exclaimed the general, taking out of the sealed container
    shiny cd. “What they found among the wreckage of the plane.” Vertex

    “Well, you have a little chance,” the dictator leaned back in
