Infoscitex (IST) Awarded US Army Research Contract for SUMIT Evaluations

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., -- DCS Corporation announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Infoscitex Corporation (IST), has been awarded a 3-year research contract to participate in the Army's Synergistic Unmanned Intelligent Teaming (SUMIT) evaluations program. The SUMIT program will evaluate the impact of new and recent autonomy, decision aiding, and human-machine interface (HMI) technologies in Army Aviation missions. This exploratory research program is managed by the US Army Aviation & Missile Research, Development & Engineering Center (AMRDEC) Aviation Development Directorate. The overall program goal is to inform the Acquisition and User communities of emerging capabilities that can meet the demands of the Army's next generation Future Vertical Lift program.

Under the SUMIT contract, IST human systems engineers and simulation developers will integrate innovative and advanced Manned Unmanned Teaming (MUMT) enabling technologies onto the AMRDEC's Future Open Rotorcraft Cockpit Environment simulator. Leveraging the Fusion Advanced Human-Machine Interface framework and the Unmanned Air/Ground/Surface Autonomy Services (UxAS) automated route planning tool, IST will provide its specialized software suite Tasking and Execution of Collaborative Unmanned and Manned Systems with Autonomy (TECUMSA) for use in the SUMIT evaluations. IST will be assisted by aviation subject matter experts from Nobletech, Inc. and researchers from the University of Dayton Research Institute.

"We look forward to leveraging IST's deep autonomy and human systems expertise to assist the Army in improving its synchronization of manned-unmanned aircraft systems operating in a tactical environment," commented Jim Benbow, DCS Chief Executive Officer. "We are also excited for the opportunity to be a part of the ever growing technology sector in Huntsville and to bring expanded DCS/IST capability to our DoD customers on Redstone Arsenal, Alabama and across the Army as part the Force Modernization effort."
