Abstract
With the increased high interest of the U.S. Air Force in developing the decision assistance tools that can optimize, layer, network, and allow cooperation of the distributed airborne sensors in the space domain and its operations, there is a fundamental need for increased level of automation, coordination and intelligent collaboration among various physical agents in the current and future battlespace to produce a common understanding of readiness of resources and real-time status. One of the major concerns of this system development is the evolution from human intervention to machine autonomy/intelligence. Many technologies regarding standalone unit operation are well developed and tested. AGNC proposes the Collaborative Analysis Simulation Tools for Space Surveillance Network (CAST4SSN) for this task cooperation problem. The objective of this project is to establish a working hardware/software integration framework in order to enable a higher-level collaborative control and command over the task orientation architecture under minimal human supervision. AGNC proposes to develop the innovative CAST4SSN which encompasses collaborative tasking decentralized subsystems, task assignment and mission planning algorithms, as well as Human Machine Interface (HMI) and is future standard compliant for external Information Technology (IT) infrastructure expansion to complete a hierarchical command chain.
