Abstract:

In this proposal, Kutta architects a high-reliable UAV Reporting Schema (UAV-RS). Kutta leverages its experience in developing flight certifiable software, avionics bus schemas, and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) ground control stations. Kutta also capitalizes on existing DOD investments and its strategic relationships within the UAV community. These relationships and existing technologies allow Kutta's team to architect a UAV-RS that quickly transitions onto the battlefield and into the National Air Space (NAS). Kutta and their partners use a proven software engineering methodology to derive the schema for the reporting system and evaluate the schemas in their own UAV hardware in-the-loop simulators. Additionally, Kutta tests the high-potential schemas and system architecture against a multitude of UAV use cases to analyze and optimize the UAV-RS. Near the end of the Phase I, Kutta demonstrates many of the preliminary schemas working in real-time 2D and 3D geo-referenced environments. At the end of the Phase I effort, Kutta delivers a System and Software Requirements Document (SSRD) for the optimized schemas and works with FAA Designated Engineering Representatives (DERs) and relevant agencies to start the process for ratification and transition of the UAV-RS onto the battlefield and into the NAS.
