C295 Cockpit Automated Procedures The objective of the R&T Program is to enhance modern cockpit operation taking into account Human Factors aspects to improve Situational Awareness and reduce Pilot Workload Load keeping flight safety level and mission effectiveness. The new function aims to simplify the way how flight crew interacts in the cockpit during normal operation or after system failure occurrence to reach the objective of automated flight. Increasing procedure automation during the checklist running while maintaining pilot in-the-loop using visual feedback Increasing pilot mental spare capacity, especially during emergency situations. Providing Automatic Aircraft reconfiguration per flight phase (flaps setting, landing gear, speed brakes, lights, general systems…) Technology and Innovation 1016 June 2016 The project request the development of an Aircraft Configuration Management system capable to monitor the aircraft systems and automatically provide commands to change the configuration. A global operational evaluation will be performed including complex scenarios with the integration of a prototype (HW&SW) in the Active Cockpit on ground demonstrator A/C Operational Actors&Interfaces
