Paper Abstract

Neural network (NN) architectures provide a thousand-fold speed-up in computational power per watt along with the flexibility to learn/adapt so as to reduce software life-cycle costs. Thus NNs are posed to provide a key supporting role to meet the avionics upgrade challenge for affordable improved mission capability especially near hardware where flexible and powerful smart processing is needed. This paper summarizes the trends for air combat and the resulting avionics needs. A paradigm for information fusion and response management is then described from which viewpoint the role for NNs as a complimentary technology in meeting these avionics challenges is explained along with the key obstacles for NNs.
