Abstract
Kutta proposes multiple solutions for the development of different Latency Improvement Algorithms and Latency Estimation Algorithms for the control of Electro Optical and Infrared (EO/IR) payloads onboard Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Numerous innovative concepts to improve EO/IR payload control when latency in the control systems reaches as high as five seconds are recommended. The Work Plan calls for Kuttas researchers to test their innovative ideas in a high-fidelity UAV video and payload simulation laboratory and perform human factors tests. The tests are purposely designed to determine which algorithms and GUIs are value-added, and the results are evaluated by a world-renowned human factors expert. Kutta also conducts a trade study that highlights the algorithms and GUIs that can be built given a SBIR Phase II time frame and budget. The Phase I culminates in a demonstration of the prototype algorithms and a summary of the lessons learned throughout the Phase I. The Phase I option concludes with recommended methodologies and action plans to design, develop, test the technology and transition it into the DoD UAV community.
