Boeing Phantom Works collaborated with Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL researchers at the Aerospace Vehicles Technology Assessment and Simulation AVTAS Laboratory and with Northrop Grumman to conduct the Open Control Platform OCP Hardware-In-The-Loop HITL project sponsored by the DARPA Software Enabled Control SEC Program. The purpose of this project is to develop the capability to be an OCP test-bed and to evaluate the OCP controls and simulation environment for a specific test case. The OCP, developed by Boeing, provides an open, middleware-enabled software framework and development platform for developers of distributed and embedded software applications. The middleware isolates the programmer from the details of the operating system and provides a mechanism for communication with other OCP software components. A Traffic Collision Avoidance System TCAS was chosen as a representative flight controls application to exercise OCP. The programmatic approach taken by the OCP-HITL project was a series of simulation experiments with increasing complexity.
