AbstractIn Phase II Kutta creates the Aviator Mission Tasker Toolkit (AMTT) by leveraging existing Department of Defense (DoD) interoperability profiles, multiple SBIR Phase II technologies, as well as several ongoing unmanned aerial system contracts. Central to the development of the AMTT is the open Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) for the system, the ease of use provided by the Graphical User Interface (GUI) in pre-mission planning and mission execution, and the ability for the toolkit to adapt to ever-changing UAS technologies. The resulting AMTT system allows tacticians, systems engineers and aviators to leverage a base set of modular, loosely-coupled software services to allocate multiple UASs to perform specific tasks in an optimized fashion. The AMTT also provides an innovative agent-based decision engine that can reduce cognitive workload and simplify manned/unmanned teaming (MUM-T) missions. Kutta tests the resulting application across multiple military vignettes with innovative Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) to demonstrate the flexibility of the system. The effort concludes with Kutta transitioning the technology to the field through its prestigious partnerships and relationships with various DoD Program Manager offices. In the end, the DoD receives a powerful tool that brings the next-generation of MUM-T capabilities to current and future aviation platforms.
