Abstract
"Impact Technologies, in cooperation with the Boeing Phantom Works and the Georgia Institute of Technology, propose the development of a software simulation Test Bench specifically focused on the design, development and implementation of AutomatedContingency Management (ACM) technologies for autonomous vehicle/mission command and control. Utilizing an integrated software simulation environment that is wellsuited for vehicle/mission control modeling and Prognostic and Health Management (PHM) reasonerdevelopment, a novel modeling paradigm for autonomous optimization of air/ground vehicle mission operations will be developed. Specifically, through the fusion of vehicle health management and logistics data, adaptable data-driven and physical models, andintelligent reasoners with direct links to the mission control system logicand algorithms, automated response analysis to changing environmental and system degradation/failures can be accommodated in real-time. The proposed program will address single and multi-vehicle ACM architectures with the modeling paradigm that can beextended to Mission Control and Multi-Vehicle ACM System integration. The end goal is to enable ACM, with the development of a Simulation Test Bench that will support both design paradigms and allow for mission-based simulation and systemtesting/validation. A realisticdemonstration will be developed for an unmanned rotorcraft within an ACM architecture, which will beexte
