MANNED-UNMANNED TEAMING

MULTI-VEHICLE MANNED/UNMANNED TOOLKIT - SAFE MUM-T

Kutta’s multi-vehicle MUM-T Toolkit (MUM-TK) provides safe (DO-178C Certifiable) and effective Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) command and control.  The MUM-TK scales from ground-based Tactical Operations Centers (TOC) to the cockpit of manned aviation assets (e.g. AH-64D/E, UH-60, FVL). The MUM-TK’s Modular Open Systems Architecture (MOSA) is aligned with the Army’s reference architecture and allows an operator to easily take “Supervised Control” of multiple UAS through an intuitive user interface. The system is compliant with existing Army Program or Record assets and is perfect fit for the next generation of Air Launched Effects (ALEs).

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs) have proven to be effective for providing an “eye in the sky” to protect the warfighter and ensure mission objectives are successful. UAS technology has evolved from straight forward Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions for situational awareness to Manned-unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) scenarios that allow aviators to control UASs from their own aircraft and fire weapons from the UAS platform.

The next evolutionary phase in MUM-T is to integrate Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AIML) software algorithms on the UAS platform to enable a collaborative MUM-T environment that reduces workload for the warfighter by autonomously identifying targets and self-planned ISR routes. Kutta is a leader in innovative, airworthy software technologies to support this next evolutionary phase in MUM-T capabilities.

At Kutta, we are experts in architecting and designing platform solutions that enable non-deterministic, unproven AIML algorithms to run while guaranteeing the UAS maintains safe flight and meets stringent safety-related requirements for Airworthiness Release (AWR). Kutta has developed a Safe MUM-T platform solution that enables non-deterministic, AIML software algorithms at a low Technology Readiness Level (TRL) to be used in air-platform resource management solutions while preventing the UAS from leaving its allocated airspace. Kutta’s Safe MUM-T solution enables a team of multiple manned and unmanned aircraft to autonomously collaborate to execute complex mission objectives using cutting edge AIML algorithms while ensuring a safe MUM-T environment.
