Abstract
THIS SBIR PHASE I EFFORT WILL PROVIDE A BASIS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INEXPENSIVE, SOFTWARE-BASED, EXTENSIBLE MULTIPLE AIRCRAFT RANGE DISPLAY SYSTEM. THIS SYSTEM WILL HAVE A MODULAR DESIGN, AND MAKE USEOF COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE GRAPHICS WORKSTATIONS. IN ADDITION, WHENEVER POSSIBLE, THE SYSTEM DESIGN WILL MAKE USE OF EXISTING, GOVERNMENT-OWNED HARDWARE, SOFTWARE AND ANALYSIS TOOLS. THIS APPROACH WILL FURTHER REDUCE DEVELOPMENT COST AND RISK. THE PROPOSED DESIGN CONCEPT FOR THE MULTIPLE AIRCRAFT RANGE DISPLAY SYSTEM WILL PERMIT NWC PERSONNEL TO MONITOR AND EVALUATE THE PROGRESS OF FLIGHT TEST EXERCISES IN REAL TIME. THIS SYSTEM WILL PERMIT MULTIPLE VIEWING PERSPECTIVES AND IS CAPABLE OF DISPLAYING THE LOCATIONS OF TEST RESOURCES, WEAPON FLYOUTS AND THREAT WEAPONS EFFECTIVENESS. THESE RESULTS CAN BE VIEWED ON BOTH LARGE SCREEN DISPLAYS AND GRAPHICS TERMINALS. IN ADDITION, THE AMHERST SYSTEMSRANGE DISPLAY SYSTEM DESIGN CONCEPT WILL PERMIT NWC PERSONNEL TO QUICKLY PERFORM POST-MISSION ANALYSIS TO BETTER DETERMINEWHETHER THEIR STATED TEST OBJECTIVES HAVE BEEN MET PRIOR TO COMPLETING THE TEST ACTIVITIES. IN THIS CAPACITY, THE RANGE DISPLAY SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE ANALYSIS TOOLS TO REPLAY KEY PORTIONS OF THE TEST EXERCISE AND IDENTIFY WHEN KEY EVENTS OCCURRED.
