Following the establishment of the Airbus/Fraunhofer FCAS-Forum, a group of Airbus Defence and Space engineers working on AI self-organised and developed a joint paper based on their views and experiences. The following text is the shortened version of a much longer paper that will be used by the FCAS Forum group for further in-depth analysis and discussion as well as for the development of an “ethics by design”-methodology to be applied for a FCAS.
