Abstract:

The Navy has a requirement to produce training systems for several UAV platforms for which no dedicated training platform is currently available. To develop a cost effective training solution for all such devices, the ability to start with one central, core solution is highly desirable. A Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), capable of real-time operation can provide such a platform, providing programmable interconnection of various vehicle component models (engine, aerodynamics, control systems, human interface, etc.) along with predefined interfaces for each required model. Differing models of the same system functions can then be interchanged without affecting other elements or the programmable core software. Users can thus retain intellectual property or security of sensitive models by integrating executable code to the SOA through the use of the predefined interfaces, or they can modify the interfaces necessary and define new revision module interfaces as required. Making the SOA software available as an open source product (by Navy permission) allows for maximum flexibility to design function modules, adapt interfaces, add new features and meet the navy"s overall goal for open architecture systems.
