Abstract : The use of various forms of Artificial Intelligence to help solve problems related to guidance and control implementations is a subject of current interest in the field. First applications have been of Knowledge Based methods to improved G & C equipment maintenance based on expert knowledge from avionics hardware experts. New programmes are in process to bring knowledge based techniques to bear in supporting the pilot in performing the tactical mission. The intent of this lecture series is to describe clearly what Artificial Intelligence techniques mean with respect to Guidance and Control applications, to offer some concrete examples of applications to the maintenance area, some more speculative examples of applications to actual G & C tasks, and a projection of possible directions for the future. Substantial research has been performed on application of knowledge based concepts to various aspects of guidance and control systems. It is purpose of this Lecture Series to bring some of the results of this research and accomplishment to the wider guidance and control community by providing in-depth description on principles of AI methods and results of application to real problems. This Lecture Series, sponsored by the Guidance and Control Panel of AGARD, has been implemented by the Consultant and Exchange Programme. Keywords: Expert systems; Military aircraft; Air traffic control.
