Comprehensive Latency Mitigation in EOIR Sensor Controls
Kutta proposes multiple solutions for the development of different Latency Improvement Algorithms and Latency Estimation Algorithms for the control of Electro Optical and Infrared (EO/IR) payloads onboard Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Numerous innovative concepts to improve EO/IR payload control when latency in the control systems reaches as high as five seconds are recommended. The Work Plan calls for Kuttas researchers to test their innovative ideas in a high-fidelity UAV video and payload simulation laboratory and perform human factors tests. The tests are purposely designed to determine which algorithms and GUIs are value-added, and the results are evaluated by a world-renowned human factors expert. Kutta also conducts a trade study that highlights the algorithms and GUIs that can be built given a SBIR Phase II time frame and budget. The Phase I culminates in a demonstration of the prototype algorithms and a summary of the lessons learned throughout the Phase I. The Phase I option concludes with recommended methodologies and action plans to design, develop, test the technology and transition it into the DoD UAV community.
