Abstract:

The Air Force has identified the need to develop affordable flight control technology to support Air Force Global Engagement objectives. Of particular interest to the Air Force is the development of real-time optimization algorithms for cooperative engagement solutions among Uninhabited Air Vehicles (UAV) in a multiple target environment. DSR proposes developing a real-time, rule based, Cooperative Engagement and Weapons Coordination (CEWC) algorithm employing doctrine statements and advanced flight control technology. DSR will evaluate three operational architectural implementation alternatives for CEWC optimization algorithm development on UAVs during this phase I project, specifically: CEWC via on-board sensors; CEWC via off-board sensors; and Hybrid CEWC employing a combination of on-board and off-board sensors. In Phase I, DSR will propose to do the following: (a) identify Information Exchange Requirements (IERs), (b) develop doctrine statements, (c) conduct an implementation design algorithm, (d) perform a simulation, and (e) conduct an implementation design tradeoff. DSR will also provide a hardware/software design, a proposed implementation plan, and a Phase II proof of concept demonstration plan.
