Organized within the framework of the CASAC Chair (sponsor: Dassault Aviation), the first International Conference on Cognitive Aircraft Systems (ICCAS) took place in the form of a webinar on May 18. This 100% digital edition aimed at promoting the dissemination and exchange of scientific information for the next generation of civil and military aircraft.
The webinar, which attracted nearly 400 registrants, covered a wide range of theoretical and practical topics related to neuroergonomics, human factors, and artificial intelligence.
The longer-term goal is to create a community to develop intelligent aeronautical systems that interact naturally with the crew while preserving the mental and physical resources of human operators.
As a preamble to the conference, Bruno Stoufflet, Director of Technological Innovation at Dassault Aviation, recalled his involvement in the mastery of air system architectures and the optimization of interaction between humans and complex systems.
Then, a presentation and a round table discussion followed on the following topics:
- The relationship between the pilot and the machine presented by Don Harris from Coventry University (UK)
- The problematic in the military domain with David Pappalardo (General Directorate of International Relations and Strategy) and Anthony Vacher (Biomedical Research Institute of the French Armed Forces, France)
Finally Mickaël Causse, referent of the CASAC Chair (Design and Architecture of Cognitive Airborne Systems) at ISAE-SUPAERO and organizer of the event presented a summary of the scientific philosophy of the conference and announced the second edition of the event at ISAE-SUPAERO in 2022.
