Abstract:

Kutta uses a proven methodology and input from an impressive list of partners including the Cognitive Engineering Research Institute (CERI) and the NGA to define the functions and determine the specifications for the development of network-centric intelligent decluttering algorithms. The company utilizes the iterative Rational Unified Process (RUP) to identify, rationalize, and detail the requirements for such algorithms. In the first stage of this process, Kutta identifies and prioritizes various relevant algorithmic qualities. In the second stage, Kutta determines which algorithmic qualities are suitable for inclusion in the project by utilizing a risk/benefit analysis. In the third stage, Kutta develops detailed software requirements for the project. At the end of Phase 1, Kutta delivers a prototype system that includes innovative declutter algorithms integrated with Kutta's current UAV controller. The combination of human factors experts, UAV control experience, and aviation knowledge, results in algorithms that are user-friendly, applicable to current UAV control stations, and aware of UAV flight planning subtleties.
