Abstract
The lack of a capability to control multiple vehicles from a single control station with a single operator continues to plague deployed forces by limiting the effectiveness of current UA systems. The solution to multiple vehicle control by a single operator, provisions for services over new Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), reductions in personnel requirements, and reduction in ties to specific hardware devices will positively impact the logistics, training, and personnel issues while adding flexibility to bring in new technologies as they mature without a complete system rework. Overall budgetary consumption related to GCS/CCS support, will diminish markedly, as one"control system"can serve all general requirements for multiple agencies and deployed systems. To meet this need, DTI will develop an innovative SOA solution for multivehicle control from a Submarine, including UAVs, USVs, UUVs, and UGVs, that is firmly integrated into the DTI Open Unmanned Interface (OpenUMI) Common Control Station Software Suite. These innovations will allow connectivity currently not available, bringing new tool sets to the front line UV operator, and building a variety of specific models to allow more UV capabilities to be made available to Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) tactical assets.
