Abstract

THIS RESEARCH WILL DEMONSTRATE FEASIBILITY AND PROVIDE TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS TO SOME OF THE ENGINEERING PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH AN ONBOARD AIRCRAFT EMBEDDED WEAPON EVALUATION SYSTEM. A MODULAR/REAL TIME MUNITION FLYOUT SIMULATION MODEL WILL BE DEMONSTRATED. AIRCRAFT TESTBED OPTIONS WILL BE EVALUATED. ALTERNATIVES TO PROVIDING REALISTIC TARGET PARAMETERS DATA TO THE AIRBORNE SIMULATION WILL BE EVALUATED. INSTRUMENTATION TECHNOLOGIES TO SUPPORT THE WSPMT CONCEPT WILL BE DETERMINED. DATA ACQUISITION, PROCESSING, STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL REQUIREMENTS WILL BE DETERMINED AND A DATA HANDLING PLAN DEVELOPED. THE REQUIREMENTS FOR A SUPPORTING GROUND BASED SYSTEM WILL BE DEFINED. INVESTIGATIONS WILL BE MADE INTO THE APPLICATION OF AI TECHNIQUES AND METHODS TO ENHANCE CAPABILITIES OF THE SYSTEM. THE EXTENSIONS OF THE SYSTEM CAPABILITIES TO PROVIDE MAN-IN-THE-LOOP TRAINING WILL BE INVESTIGATED.
