DAYTON, Ohio, Dec. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- DCS Corporation's Infoscitex (IST) subsidiary has been awarded a contract to support the Advanced Teaming Demonstration Program (A-Team) for the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center Aviation Development Directorate, Ft. Eustis, VA (CCDC AvMC ADD-E).
The award includes work in two Subsystems Technology Development and Integration tasks on A-Team to pursue Human-Machine Interface and Operations Management autonomy technologies necessary to enable teamed, multi-domain operations in lethal, denied environments. The A-Team program encompasses Army systems, subsystems, and component technologies ranging from manned and unmanned aircraft systems and mission equipment packages to software enabled capabilities, integrated to enable advanced teaming operational capabilities.
The A-Team effort will leverage and extend IST's TECUMSA software architecture and research in manned-unmanned teaming from the Army's Synergistic Unmanned Intelligent Teaming (SUMIT) program. Under this program, IST's Dayton-based team will work closely with Army representatives and other A-Team contributors to execute technical demonstrations that will set the stage for Army adoption of autonomous technologies.
"Infoscitex is pleased to have the opportunity to continue our development of innovative manned-unmanned teaming technologies into mature, field testable autonomy systems that support the Army's Future Vertical Lift Program objectives," stated Mike Gilkey, Vice President, Infoscitex Air and Space Operations.
