IAI Awarded MDA Contract to Develop a Kernel-Based Virtual Machine for Simulations

ROCKVILLE, Md.—May 26, 2021—Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Missile Defense Agency to develop a kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) to support accurate timing in non-real-time simulations.

In this contract, IAI will develop an extendable virtual execution framework to support runtime software system testing in simulation environments. This innovation will synchronize to the non-real-time clock in the simulation framework so that the time-stamp counter can be used to control the simulation rather than its intended virtualization use.

“IAI understands the challenge of timing accuracy for non-real-time software simulations and is proud to support the Missile Defense Agency’s efforts in this area,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

IAI deploys software and hardware technologies to support hardware-in-the-loop testing and spectrum planning. IAI’s channel simulations emulate terrain, distance, motion, and interference for connected radio systems. These technologies enable simulation of radar returns and the injection of signal degradation from electronic warfare equipment. These tools are used to gain better understanding of how their radio systems will respond to complex RF environments and contested spectrum.
