In Phase II, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to advance the development of the Rapid and Agile Component Development (RACD) tool suite. This tool suite consists of open-source tools and royalty-free, FACE/ARINC-661 software modules to rapidly implement a reusable pilot-vehicle interface (PVI) with updated functionality with minimal development effort and recertification. We conclusively demonstrated the feasibility of the RACD tool suite by assembling a proof-of-concept Phase I prototype to rapidly create and verify the PVI. In Phase II, POC proposes to implement several improvements to include new plugins for the RACD open-source editor and enhance visualization, raising the portability of ARINC-661 modules (specifically, the cockpit display system will be integrated with the graphics processing unit (GPU) and the Khronos OpenGL, EGL, and OpenCL standards) and creating reusable FACE/ARINC-661 modules of an avionic client-server architecture. We will install RACD modules on POC/Army avionic systems using multiple CPU architectures to demonstrate portability. The proposed effort will result in a technology readiness level (TRL)-5/6 RACD prototype that will be ready for verification, validation, and qualification tests in Phase III. POC will implement a commercialization plan outlined in this proposal to ensure transition of the RACD tool suite for both military and commercial use.
