Abstract
Unmanned Aerial Systems are rapidly evolving in each of the armed services from their traditional Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance missions to platforms with a mix of payloads and weapons. All indications are that this evolution will continue and the future of Fire Scout will include an assortment of weapons and other mission payloads. Each of these future integration programs would be time consuming and expensive if traditional acquisition and integration approaches from the era of manned aircraft were adopted. Torch Technologies, Inc. has partnered with General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems to propose a robust and credible approach to weapon and mission payload integration that is based on the Object Management Group (OMG) Model Driver ArchitectureT (MDA) Initiative. the Torch Team proposes a complete systems engineering approach that is based on the principles of MDA. It is a solution that separates functionality from architecture so that it can be maintained and reused, even across multiple architectures. It is a solution that will map the functionality to the platform processing architecture based on the Fire Scout Program Manager's safety, reliability, security, real-time and resource consumption requirements, and permit early and cost effective verification and validation that those requirements will be met.
