IAI and its academic partner propose to develop technology that will generate credible future demand for UAS vehicles given proposed UAS missions. The technology will consist of three parts. The first part is an activity-based modeling system that translates inchoate mission profile information into overall demand between city pairs and counties for UAS aircraft. The second part translates the overall demand into specific flight data sets, specifying the origin, destination, scheduled departure and arrival times, as well as the type of aircraft flown along the route. The final part consists of a data warehouse system that will store the flight data sets and allow analysts to retrieve them to support custom UAS studies.
