Research Institution
Kutta uses a proven methodology and input from an impressive list of partners including The Boeing Company, to define the functions and determine the specifications for a wireless Personal Flight Data Recorder (PFDR) device. The company's iterative Rational Unified Process (RUP) identifies, rationalizes and details the system's functions. In the first stage of this process, Kutta identifies and prioritizes potential PFDR functions. In the second stage, Kutta rationalizes the identified functions using a risk/benefit analysis. In the third stage, Kutta details the selected functions and develops software specifications using its expertise in developing high-reliability certifiable avionics software. Kutta delivers a wireless prototype device that interfaces to a simulation at the end of Phase I. Kutta's PFDR system utilizes light-weight wireless gyros and accelerometers found in today's small unmanned aerial vehicles, as well other wireless sensors. The PFDR's user interface gives flight test engineers the ability to create modular multi-page displays with dials, gauges and strip charts. The flight test pilot interacts with the device in a hands-free environment and views the data displays on a full color VGA screen.
