Abstract:

In this proposal, Kutta leverages its own Multi-Mission Planner and Controller Tool - Software Development Kit (MMPACT-SDK) as well as its partner's past autonomous collaborative experiences. Kutta's SDK allows the team to architect a controller that enables an operator to launch an offensive mission with unmanned aircraft (UA) and unmanned ground vehicles. The UAs in this proposal are unique in that they can be equipped with modular standard military issued small arms payloads (e.g. M-16s, grenades, flash-bang grenades, or subterranean radios). The user interface allows the operator the ability to launch semi-autonomous or completely autonomous missions. Unique concepts of operations that take advantage of the modular UA payloads enable offensive strafing operations, perimeter security, lead/follow modes, as well as surprise attacks, including unique subterranean capabilities. In order to accomplish this goal, Kutta uses a proven software engineering methodology to derive the set of functionality for the autonomous version of the MMPACT controller (A-MMPACT). Based upon the functionality assessment, Kutta designs the necessary software components for integration into the existing SDK and concludes the Phase I with a demonstration of a mission thread with an actual UA in the loop.
