Abstract
This rapidly growing company has developed a model driven open architecture system that implements weapons on unmanned air systems. It consists of the unmanned system control and air vehicle elements and is highly consistent with the emerging Department of Defense mandates for unmanned air systems open architectures and associated data link and weapon interface standards. Demonstrated in the lab with Fire Scout and fligt tested with Shadow and Tiger Shark. It has been demonstrated with 4 weapons across 3 major defense companies. The model driven design facilitates cross platform portability and its design for reconfiguration make it weapon agnostic and open for new non lethal payloads such as electronic warfare. Funds are in hand for flight test in 2014 with the Shadow system with additoinal planning in 2014 for non lethal payloads.
