HSI. CARUSO. Context-adaptable Autonomous and Remote Unmanned vehicles Systems Operation. “There is no such thing as an unmanned system”. David Bellino BellinoDS@Npt.NUWC.Navy.Mil Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Newport RI April 2005.
Fundamental objective of HSI is to influence system design and engineering
Focus on safety, performance, and interactions of humans with the equipment that they operate and maintain.
Ensures that the resulting system will have the highest and safest performance at the lowest total ownership cost (TOC)
Focus on people/KSA as an essential element of systems designSponsor NAVSEA03:
Systems engineering discipline dedicated to providing Navy systems with the best total system performance at the lowest total ownership cost (TOC).
