The Institute of Flight Systems (IFS-FMFF) of the University of the German Armed Forces has been researching in the field of Human Autonomy Teaming for more than 12 years. The institute develops paradigms for cooperative cooperation of man and machine in aviation. The core of the idea is that humans and automation with their respective strengths are involved in the work process in order to achieve a goal set by man.

 

HAT.tec – Human Autonomy Teaming Technologies – is an innovative startup founded in 2018 as a spinoff of the Institute of Flight Systems.

 

The overall objective of HAT.tec is the transfer of key concepts developed in completed research studies and successfully tested and validated in laboratory prototypes at IFS. The main question to be investigated is to what extent the developed concepts can be transferred into application-oriented solutions on real platforms.

 

The company was founded by former IFS employees Yannick Brand and Fabian Schmitt together with Prof. Axel Schulte.

 

Our team consists of highly experienced and dedicated engineers who are always ready to push the boundaries of technology. We build on more than 15 years of experience in the field of Human-Autonomy Teaming technologies. Our team consists mainly of former IFS employees.

While AI will fundamentally change the way work is done, technology will  ultimately enhance human capabilities rather than replace them. The benefit of such Human Autonomy Teams is a significant increase in human and mission performance, especially in highly complex environments, by combining the strengths of both partners.

 

HAT.tec GmbH is a software development, research and consulting company specialized in Human Autonomy Teaming Technologies. Our core competencies comprise the utilization of state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence technologies such as automated reasoning, planning and decision making to create software solutions that dramatically enhance overall mission and human performance.

 

Our solutions are human-centered and ensure a high level of operator situational awareness while maintaining a manageable workload for effective collaboration.
