Abstract:

In this proposal, Kutta capitalizes on existing DOD investments, its own hand-held UAV controller technology, and additional UGV technology developed as part of DARPA's 2004 Grand Challenge. This prior work experience and knowledge allows the team to architect a multi-mission planner and controller tool (MMPACT) that is supportive of future hardware and software upgrades. Kutta and its prestigious partners use a proven software engineering methodology to derive the set of functionality for MMPACT. Based upon a functionality assessment, Kutta leverages its experience in architecting flight certifiable software and UV related systems to design a highly-reliable, component-based, JAUS compliant system. The innovative architecture allows the operator to plan, coordinate, and re-plan a heterogeneous mix of manned and unmanned asset acting as a single unit. The phase I effort culminates in a demonstration on a hand-held platform which allows an operator to plan, control and re-plan a typical mission with multiple UAVs, UGVs and manned assets. Kutta also measures and quantifies MMPACT's CPU and memory utilization on a variety of hand-held platforms. At the end of the Phase I effort, Kutta delivers a system and software requirements document and a list of "must have" functionality for MMPACT.
