The primary objective of the OCU and Payload Committee OPC within the Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems JAUS working group is to assess the JAUS Reference Architecture RA specifications ability to address interoperability. The OPC was tasked to evaluate new messages and protocols before accepting them into the RA. To accomplish these objectives, the OPC conducted several experiments for collection of information on current and recommended approaches. The latest experiment, Experiment 3.0, was conducted at Tyndall AFB, FL in April 2006. Organizations from government, industry and academia participated in this experiment. Experiment 3.0s goal was to evaluate recommended approaches for advanced autonomy capabilities including mission execution and world modeling. There were three main conclusions 1 Extensions to the JAUS standard message set provide a solid foundation for interoperability. 2 Compliance verification is vital prior to mission command and control of unmanned systems 3 Future work is needed for implementation consistency. This paper provides an overview of the OPC experiment development, results, and future plans.
