Abstract:

This proposal addresses the significant need for the design of a Human Computer Interface (HCI) in a Distributed UAV Access System (DUAS). The DOD roadmap goals of UAV interoperability are addressed utilizing the Global Information Grid (GIG). Goals and objectives for the design of two desired Distributed UAV Access Systems are presented, along with goals for simulations of the systems. An impressive team of industry partners is assembled, including The Boeing Company. The Phase 1 work plan employs the Rational Unified Process (RUP) to ensure a focus on user needs. Examples of unique and innovative proposed functionality for the HCI DUAS solutions include 3D situational awareness, mission plan comparison and visualization, UAV filtering, and route retasking. Technologies developed from Kutta's previous work creating a hand-held PDA controller for small UAVs are leveraged. Kutta captures the requirements of two candidate systems in a system and software requirements specification document and creates a simulation integration plan. At the end of Phase 1, time sensitive targeting prototype demonstrations are presented for both proposed solutions. Military and civilian market segments are defined, including the DOD, Coast Guard, Border Patrol, and police departments.
