In advanced fighter jets, if its onboard computers judge that the plane has suffered a ‘fatal’ hit, and so long as certain criteria are met (such as not over water; not ‘behind enemy lines’ as defined and programed prior to flight; or any other consideration or factors that an air force might want to include), then: is the pilot auto-ejected? Is such an option available? If so, should it be?
I’m thinking of a scenario either whether the pilot is out of action and the plane won’t last more than a few seconds (as assessed by the computers) OR when the program predicts that a fatal and inescapable explosion/break-up is already overdue and even split seconds might matter.
I am assuming, of course, some pretty sophisticated programming and advanced sensors of all sorts. Even so, I doubt it’s beyond the capacity of, say, the US Military.
