The National Airworthiness Council (NAC) Keystone Panel Objective:

2021 Theme: "Digital Transformation"
Digitally engineered systems are rapidly replacing humans in processing, monitoring, performance, design, and decision making in ways that one could hardly have imagined fifty years ago. Digital systems with Artificial Intelligence capabilities are becoming commonplace in aviation systems. As a result, the U.S. Government is becoming increasingly dependent upon digital engineering, Model Based Systems Engineering, and digital tools for analysis, and requirements traceability and certification. As the digital transformation continues, military and government agencies must balance the need to leverage the new capabilities these technologies offer, against the necessity to meet the fundamental requirements of airworthiness, safety, performance, cost, and regulatory considerations. In the National Airworthiness Council’s Digital Transformation Keystone Panel session, key stakeholders from the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, and NASA will each discuss aspects of their approaches, opportunities, and challenges that are associated with the rapidly expanding Digital Transformation within the aviation world.
