Abstract:

The Next Generation Software and Survivability Technology areas of TARDEC RDECOM proposed the Dependable Automated Reconfigurable Technology DART. The DARTs Health Situation Control will test the processing elements with ProbeAgent technology for software checking. Algorithms within the Health Situation Control will assess the health of the processors and recommend element hand-off based on a Criticality Scoring System in conjunction with the Statistical Usage Test SUT model. The DART technology represents the next generation of software systems for ground combat vehicles. DART will enhance the performance of a weapon system by providing on-the-fly reconfiguration to accommodate the loss or malfunction of processing elements or to optimize on board computational capability. Off-vehicle probes will be launched to assess the health of companion vehicles within the Operations Unit. The SUT will be used to evaluate software reliability.
