Abstract
To meet the challenge of aiding the Army aviator with flying a complex aircraft in a dangerous region of airspace, Applied System Intelligence, Inc. (ASI), with participation from Sikorsky Aircraft Company (SAC), plans to add decision-aiding behaviors to the UH-60M Black Hawk helicopter in a system called Situational Awareness Fusion Enhancement Aid (SAFE-Aid). SAFE-Aid, an Intelligent Associate (IA) system, will provide the power to dynamically control multiple UAVs and other air assets for Manned Un-Manned (MUM) teaming capabilities, as well as aid the pilot with complex utility cargo and MEDEVAC missions. An Intelligent Associate system is an architecture built on a knowledge base that includes procedural information, operational data, and a current picture of the world state. ASI will lead the software development and manned simulation testing, using the UH-60M manned simulation facility at SAC. The software baseline for SAFE-Aid will use ASI"s proven Solomon Software Suite to implement intelligent aiding functionality that includes situation assessment, dynamic planning, procedure execution assistance and cockpit information management. Major emphasis will be placed on manned simulator evaluations of fully implemented candidate functionality to establish the final requirements and design for SAFE-Aid as a separate component of the UH-60M digital avionics system.
