A team led by Raytheon Technologies’ research and development arm has secured an 18-month contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to identify new approaches and design practices to improve human-machine teaming.

Raytheon BBN said Monday it will work with Mile Two and the University of Massachusetts Lowell to build human-machine interfaces that could help operators better understand system performance thresholds based on physical, software and environmental constraints, mission goals and critical processes as part of DARPA’s Enhancing Design for Graceful Extensibility program.

This is an exciting opportunity to do both focused human machine interface design work alongside applied research to operationalize the Theory of Graceful Extensibility–the ability of a system to adapt when surprise events push it to its boundaries,” said Jon Sussman-Fort, a principal investigator at Raytheon BBN.

Our goal is to design a proactive, predictive multi-agent interface system that will reduce human operator workload, increase the number of robots under simultaneous control, and improve system resilience in off-nominal conditions,” he added.

Work on the DARPA contract will be performed in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Ohio.
