Abstract
Kutta proposes the development of a System of Modular Adaptive Reusable Tools (SMART) capable of real-time decision aiding and visualization across multiple platforms. SMART is a modular and componentized product designed to enhance operator performance, survivability, and lethality on both current and future force platforms. Kutta’s library of modular UMS decision aids, designed to achieve a total warfighter cognitive workload reduction of greater than 50%, are utilized in the development of the operating system independent SMART. Kutta also proposes the development of a UMS ontology, used by SMART to adapt and customize each of the decision aids to the specific needs, capabilities, and payload of each platform. To maximize interoperability and reuse, SMART integrates with Kutta’s library of industry standard UMS messaging interfaces including JAUS, STANAG 4586, Joint Variable Message Format, and Cursor on Target. Kutta also proposes the development of a graphical user interface toolkit that permits rapid configuration of the decision aids. Kutta’s modular and reusable SMART product coupled with the proposed graphical toolkit provides the warfighter with a suite of decision aids that can significantly reduce cognitive workload and increase lethality in both the current and future force.
