The aim of the laboratory is to identify, explore and develop technological solutions for the next generation of aircraft. These solutions involve Artificial Intelligence being applied to platforms to provide autonomy, to help manage complex missions and to increase digitalisation in the design, development and production phases. In the laboratory, the activities performed include research into electrification of propulsion systems to create a sustainable future for manned and uncrewed aircraft.

The unit focuses on studying new human-machine interfaces that allow monitoring of the mental and physical condition of pilots, improving their workload and providing them with greater awareness of the operational scenario.
Researcher: Giancarlo Allasia
The research unit studies methods and applications for the autonomy of future aircraft, plus the collaboration of manned and unmanned systems based on Artificial Intelligence techniques.
Researchers: Matteo Scanavino, Manuel Colavincenzo
The research unit studies methods and technologies to create, through high-performance computers, the Digital Twin of an aircraft that evolves during its entire lifecycle, from design to production and through to the operational phase.
Researchers: Rocco Gentile, Viola Rossano
The unit is involved in research activities focused on Artificial Intelligence applied to aerostructures, to develop methods and tools for the analysis and simulation of properties and performance, which improve production efficiency.
