Abstract : Combat aircraft of the 21st Century will have to be increasingly well equipped to counter the future threat, which itself will have become far more potent. This spiralling system complexity will result in unacceptably high cockpit workloads unless some form of automation is provided to aid the pilot. UK Industry and Government have combined to form a Joint Venture team to investigate the problem and to develop a Mission Management Aid which will assist aircrew throughout the mission, whatever and wherever it is. The paper outlines some of the problems to be overcome and suggests the major functional areas which will constitute the Mission Management Aid.
