Abstract
Not Available Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a real-time, autonomous, self-adjustable, and robust path intercept trajectory algorithm to guide pilots back to a predefined path. The proposed Autonomous Flight Path Maintainer (AFPM) is based on the POC's proprietary parallel adaptive genetic algorithm (PAGA) and look-ahead prediction methodology. The PAGA will provide adaptability and fast optimization to calculate the off-state between the current path and the predefined path, while the look-ahead prediction methodology predicts the next position. Embedding POC's PAGA optimization engine and look-ahead predictor into the current flight simulator MIL-AASPEM (Man-in-the-loop Air-to-Air System Performance Evaluator) will show the feasibility of the proposed AFPM. During Phase I, POC will focus on demonstrating the feasibility of the AFPM and designing the Phase II high-level specifications, including the hardware computing platform.
