Abstract:

Kutta Technologies proposes development of an Aviator Mission Tasker Toolkit (AMTT) which affords users the ability to drag and drop logical agent-based features to create a Manned/Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) application that will interface with modern avionics systems and provide for multi-vehicle unmanned systems control with low cognitive workload. To engineer the system, Kutta teams with world-renowned human factors experts and large company partners. Furthermore, Kutta leverages its in-depth knowledge of RTCA DO-178B processes and procedures to architect a solution that is certifiable in both military and commercial product lines. When complete, Kutta"s AMTT will provide tacticians, systems developers, and aviators the ability to leverage Kutta"s powerful unmanned systems mission and payload planning services. Kutta delivers an architecture for AMTT that is open and supports the addition of other company"s proprietary applications as long as they meet the architectural requirements of modularity and open interfaces. The resulting tool outputs executable software and panel configuration files. A Panel Manager functions in the avionics system and displays the multi-vehicle MUM-T information contained in the configuration files with sound human factors principals in mind. The Phase I work concludes with a simulated MUM-T Apache search and destroy mission utilizing a prototype AMTT.
