Cognitive Automation as part of a UAV provides cognitive capabilities similar to those of a human pilot. These capabilities include planning, problem solving, decision making, and - generally speaking - dynamically reacting to a changing tactical situation and environment. This functional element shall be introduced onboard the aircraft in form of a so-called Artificial Cognitive Unit (ACU). The application of an ACU shall relieve the operator by enabling him to focus only on high-level mission goals and hence realize the advanced concept of Task-Based Guidance. There, the operator will issue a set of abstract tasks to the UAV. These will be processed by the on-board ACU to create a complete and detailed task agenda which will be dynamically adapted in case of unforeseen events. In the Mission and Payload Control Station, Cognitive Automation in terms of an Assistant System will support the operator during the guidance process. The Assistant ACU, exhibiting knowledge both in the UAV mission domain and in the operator's cognitive processes, will support the operator by means of Mixed-Initiative Operation and Operator Intent Recognition.
