Systems Engineering Group (SEG) to Demonstrate New Technologies During ANTX Dahlgren Event
Press Releases on September 12, 2017
Telephonics Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corporation (NYSE:GFF), announced today that its subsidiary, Systems Engineering Group (SEG) will demonstrate their autonomous UAV control and PULSEbox capabilities during the Annual Naval Technology Exercise (ANTX), Dahlgren Division being held September 13-14th.
The autonomous UAV control demonstration will include a System Manager in a UAV control ConOps scenario. System Manager is a model-based expert system of systems, which can plan, schedule and initiate ConOps processes to provide round the clock automation in the Flight Dynamics Operations Area (FDOA) on NASA’s Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission. This enables NASA to minimize human involvement in controlling satellite maneuvers along with optimizing data downloads.
PULSEbox offers a high fidelity, real-time, RF threat scene generator that integrates SEG’s threat models with optimized hardware. The system will create advanced test ecosystems by providing real-world target simulated threat states and related radar representations in laboratory settings, leading to improved testing of interoperable elements before live-sea testing events of air-breathing and ballistic missile threats.
“Both the autonomous UAV control and PULSEbox technologies align with the U.S. Navy’s requirements for more autonomous systems with limited human control requirements and more realistic training, simulation and modeling environments”, said Michael Anderson, Telephonics Vice President and SEG General Manager, “We look forward to demonstrating these important advancements with the ANTX team in Dahlgren.”
ANTX-Dahlgren is a two-day event providing a low risk environment to evaluate technological innovations at the research and development level before technologies become militarized and integrated at the operational level.
