Abstract
The Air Force requires a system that connects multiple onboard systems and provides a translation mechanism to allow all of them to effectively speak one language. This Intelligent Distributed Decision Management system will be designed to minimize the cognitive load on Decision Makers and Shooters. This system will: 1) Provide a mechanism that can read from and write to multiple hardware and protocol interfaces. 2) Create a translation layer that converts to and from device data formats. 3) Develop a network distribution system that distributes the avionics data. 4) Develop a sensor fusion layer that distills and aggregates the raw data to avoid cognitive. 5) Develop a system that notifies the decision maker when the factors used to determine a target priority change or when the factors used to determine a potentially higher priority target change. 6) Develop a network distribution system that distributes the avionics and decision. 7) Adapt the fusion layer to facilitate the presentation of pertinent sensor and decision data. We propose to create an Intelligent Distributed Decision Management architecture for Flight Systems and will work with Ball Aerospace to integrate their KnowledgeKineticsT system into OpenSkies to facilitate scenario creation and testing of the entire system.
