Abstract
The TORC team, which includes Dr. Jonathan Sprinkle of the University of Arizona (UA), will develop enabling software and modeling methods for the Autonomous System Demonstration and Experimentation Workbench. The workbench will assist test engineers, systems engineers and analysts in designing and equipping autonomous unmanned vehicles for a variety of operations. The proposed work is based on over a decade of expertise in domain-specific modeling, autonomous vehicles, and software synthesis for large, complex systems. The team will design the workbench to serve both data input users - those who need to test and validate unmanned systems while extracting relevant information for the database - and data consumption users - those who need to use the workbench to perform systems engineering, missions CONOPS scenarios and other analytical tasks necessary to employ a highly complex unmanned, autonomous system.
