Abstract
NextGen Federal Systems is proposing a system that addresses one of key problems for human-machine teams as they operate under conditions where communications links can be periodically lost or jammed. One of the primary challenges is that flight crews have to quickly assimilate all of the changes and events that have occurred to the unmanned platform during the outage in order to re-establish a shared situation awareness. This is a very time consuming and cognitively challenging task. NextGens solution will provide both the manned and unmanned components with a synchronized situation model that is maintained during periods of communications loss. This will provide the flight crew with an estimated current status of the UAV. Once communications are recovered, this model is then cross-checked against the unmanned platforms actual status and telemetry. Using our unique information shaping algorithm, the system will present a synthesized view of the many discrete events and changes that have occurred in a manner that supports rapid resynchronization between the flight crew and the UAV.
