Abstract

As deployed UxVs and the range of their applications continue to increase, the responsibility of the UxV operator has likewise shifted to encompass simultaneous control of an aggregate of multiple vehicles from multiple warfare domains. In this new aggregated paradigm, replanning, retasking, and reassignment must be supported by solutions that enable a single operator to maintain awareness of the overall tactical situation as well as status and threats associated with individual UxVs. CHI Systems and its partner, Lockheed Martin, are pleased to propose Situational Awareness with Layered Visualizations for Operators of Unmanned System Aggregates (SALVO-USA). The SALVO-USA effort will involve principled identification of mission-oriented requirements for situational awareness, associated user interface and interaction needs and relevant technologies, and analysis of the replanning process including specification of replanning triggers and evaluation of replanning technologies. SALVO-USA will provide operators with an intuitive interface consisting of multiple coordinated layers of information for individual vehicles and the battlespace as a whole. These new approaches will empower the individual operator in a multi-vehicle multi-domain environment.
