Abstract:

THE REAL-TIME MISSION PLANNING ASPECTS OF AIR LAND BATTLE MANAGEMENT (ALBM) REQUIRE EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE USE OF ALL AVAILABLE INTELLIGENCE DATA TO OPTIMIZE EMPLOYMENT OF MODERN MILITARY ASSETS. ALTHOUGH SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN DEVELOPING ADVANCED COMPUTER TECHNIQUES FOR MANY FACETS OF BATTLEFIELD MANAGEMENT, APPLICATIONS IN THE AREA OF BATTLEFIELD WEATHER HAVE BEEN LACKING. PHASE I OF THE PROPOSED WORK WILL ADDRESS THE USE OF ADVANCED COMPUTER TECHNIQUES FOR MERGING VARIOUS WEATHER DATA FROM THE LOCAL BATTLEFIELD REGION TO SUPPORT REAL-TIME MISSION PLANNING AND BATTLEFIELD MANAGEMENT. METSAT, INC. PROPOSES TO DEVELOP SPECIFIC TECHNIQUES FOR WEATHER DATA INTEGRATION INTO A DATA-BASE ARCHITECTURE OPTIMIZE FOR REAL-TIME MISSION SUPPORT. THE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS THE EFFECTIVE USE OF APPROPRIATE WEATHER INFORMATION TO OPTIMIZE THE EMPLOYMENT OF BOTH AIR AND GROUND COMBAT RESOURCES. THE ADVANCED TECHNIQUES DEVELOPED IN PHASE II WILL UTILIZE MODERN COMPUTING TECHNOLOGIES SUCH AS PARALLEL PROCESSING.
