An industry team led by General Electric‘s aviation business has received a two-year contract from the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory to prototype architectures intended to facilitate manned-unmanned teaming activities.

GE Aviation will collaborate with Modern Technology Solutions Inc., Scientific Systems Co., Dependable Computing and GE’s Global Research Center on the architectural modeling and prototyping project called Teaming-Enabled Architectures for Manned-Unmanned Systems, MTSI said Thursday.

The lab-sponsored TEAMS initiative falls under the Base Vertical Lift Consortium Project Agreement and is part of AFRL’s Flexible, Assured Manned-Unmanned Systems program, which aims to introduce a technical foundation for the operation of “heterogeneous, multi-man, multi-machine team-of-teams” in multiple missions.

John Kormash, director of advanced and special programs at GE Aviation, said the company’s modeling, simulation, architecture and system instantiation experience can support the laboratory’s objectives of creating open architectures for autonomous vehicles.

The government backs the project through an other transaction agreement with the Vertical Lift Consortium.
