Abstract
This proposal is for a Phase II program for further development and prototyping of a Development and Run-time Environment for Aviation Mission-tasking and Mission-management (DREAMM) for manned-unmanned teams. Development and modification of the tightly integrated avionics in a combat aircraft is highly technical and currently requires skilled engineers to effect even the most minor changes in system functionality, which then must go through an exhaustive approval process. Additionally the process requires that ideas be translated from the language of tacticians into that of engineers, often leading to misinterpretations. To address this problem we are developing a system that supports configuration of new, intelligent avionic capabilities by this team of war fighting and system experts who may not be expert in underlying technologies. Our focus is 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. In Phase I, we completed and demonstrated a prototype system that was focused on understanding the feasibility of the overall approach and working through issues related to the most challenging technical components. In executing our approach, we will expand on the achievements of our successful Phase I effort.
