The problem of optimal degree of autonomy and minimal complexity is considered for mission capable systems in spacecrafts and unmanned aeronautical systems. Levels of autonomy and system requirements are discussed. Simple and goal oriented system architectures are summarized and the prospect of plug-andplay systems is outlined. The engineering compromise to be made between degree of autonomy and verifiability of multi-agent systems is pointed out. Three main challenges are highlighted to aid progress of future development of verifiable autonomous vehicles
