Abstract
The Air Force requires a system that is able to connect multiple onboard aircraft systems, providing a translation mechanism to allow all of them to interoperate. During the Phase I effort we demonstrated the feasibility of such a system by developing an Intelligent Distributed Decision Management (IDDM) system. This system helps to minimize the cognitive load on Decision Makers and Shooters while, at the same time, aids in minimizing the bandwidth requirements of the IDDM itself. Furthermore, the system also facilitates the aggregation of data and the definition of rules for the propagation or filtering of data. In Phase II, we will write translators for a number of other client protocols, beyond the SADL translator completed in the Phase I, to demonstrate the capability of our common FOM to express all concepts used across these disparate domains. We also propose to continue the development of an IDDM architecture for Flight Systems, and will work with Ball Aerospace to create two products: a pre-production prototype software RTAG ("Real-Time Information into the Cockpit" to Avionics Gateway) and a Commander's Portal. A hardware version of the RTAG will also be designed and prototyped.
