Real-time Data Fusion and Visualization Interface for Environmental Research Data.
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Atmospheric measurements carried out by use of small research aircraft will be greatly enhanced by a data system capable of on-the-fly data reduction, fusion of data sets, graphic representation of the data, and dissemination of the data to users. Mission controllers, mission scientists and sensor engineers thus will have real-time access to the data and data products, and can from their offices provide support via a bi-directional communications link to the flight director aboard the aircraft. The results of this SBIR are applicable to any sensor-based or ranges systems in airborne and land based applications requiring time synchronous sampling, data set fusion and dissemination. A flexible and scalable architecture will be designed that enables the extensive use of COTS equipment and semiconductors. At the conclusion of a successful Phase I effort we will provide the Navy with a design and laboratory demonstration system with associated sensors and sampling times that are synchronized within the time stamp the defined time stamp resolution. Specifically, 3 Phoenix will work with Navy to identify candidate systems that will benefit from synchronous sampling and fusion; demonstrate real time data fusion and time synchronous sampling; and, provide a detailed technical and performance tradeoff.
