Abstract
This proposal is for development of a Development and Run-time Environment for Aviation Mission-tasking and Mission-management (DREAMM) for manned-unmanned teams. Our proposed system will support Army system developers, tacticians, and aviators in defining and tailoring cockpit automation, aiding, and tasking associated with mission planning, coordination, and execution to facilitate effective usage of unmanned systems in coordination with manned platforms within an evolving mission context. Our focus will be on creating a design environment in which aids for the aviator to effectively employ sensors and payloads of both air and ground unmanned systems throughout the mission from planning to after-action review can be defined, implemented, evaluated, and exported to operational planning and Command-and-Control (C2) systems, both on-board and off-board the aircraft. The aids will include tools that direct UV tactical behaviors, monitor UV status and performance, provide cues to the aviator on actions needed, and provide selective and, adaptive automation to some tasks [Miller and Parasuraman, 2007]. Our development environment will provide checks that keep tactics and tool development within the performance parameters of target systems and produce run-time prototype tools that are interoperable with live and virtual simulation in which to validate proposed tactics and tools.
