The 40th DASC will explore the integration of human and increasingly autonomous systems within the air transportation system. There has been much recent emphasis on the application of autonomy in avionics and impacts on safety. As we move to accept automation in flight systems, UAS platforms, and interaction with ground and spacebased systems the need to address interaction with humans, be they pilots, controllers, passengers, or users remains of high concern. This is overlaid on top of current safety requirements, increasing security requirements, and the emergence of machine learning in design and operation. These areas, and more, will be addressed through a variety of research presentations, plenary panels, and workshops.
