Abstract
"Solipsys has developed a modular, standards-based, open-architecture visualization product called the Tactical Display Framework (TDF) that has been certified by Sun Microsystems as "100% Pure Java" and meets or exceeds the performance and loadingcharacteristics required for the Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS). TDF poses little technical risk, as it is currently being employed as the core graphics system for an AWACS 40/45 risk reduction effort known as the Prototype AWACS Display(PAD). The PAD is being jointly developed by the USAF, the Boeing Company, and Solipsys and has been demonstrated to operators and warfighters through complex simulation and operator-in-the-loop exercises at various locations. Under development for over ayear, the PAD has leveraged the sophisticated and mature Application Programming Interface (API) exposed within TDF to rapidly develop, test, and deliver new features. The kernel capabilities of the TDF API have also proven to be a flexible and modifiableplatform upon which to explore and spiral advanced GUI concepts specific to the AWACS 40/45 program. The availability of the PAD during Phase I of this SBIR provides an excellent opportunity for significant progress toward a robust implementation of AWACSfunctionality and a smooth transition to Phase II and beyond. The proposed approach will prove the efficacy of TDF to develop significant visualization improvements for AWACS using the modern Jav
