and design practices, including the introduction of meaningful figures of merit for trading off such parameters as machine versus human functionality.
Because of the need for mission performance to be highly reliable—perhaps as reliable as safe manned flight—the fault tolerance and fail-safe characteristics of all flight-safety-critical control technologies on UAVs and UCAVs should be extended, as required, to ensure that mission-critical functions are performed reliably.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
