Abstract:

IN THIS PROPOSAL A CONCEPT, INMASS, IS DESCRIBED AS A MEANS TO INCREASE THE SURVIVABILITY OF TACTICAL AIRCRAFT PERFORMING AIR-TOGROUND MISSIONS. INMASS EMPLOYS A SHORT-RANGE, COVERT DATA LINK TO TIGHTLY NET A FORMATION OF TACTICAL AIRCRAFT ALLOWING THE FORMATIONS TO FLY AND FIGHT AS A SINGLE UNIT. THE WORKLOAD IS SHARED, IN AN OPTIMUM WAY, AMONG ALL THE MEN AND COMPUTERS WITHIN THE SET OF AIRCRAFT. FOR EXAMPLE, SEVERAL MEN MAY PERFORM EW FUNCTIONS, ONE OR TWO IN THE FRONT OF THE FORMATION MAY PERFORM TARGET ACQUISITION AND SEVERAL AT THE REAR OF THE FORMATION MAY FIRE WEAPONS. THIS APPROACH MAKES MAXIMUM USE OF AVAILABLE RESOURCES AND WITH SEPARATED AIRCRAFT FOR TARGET ACQUISITION AND WEAPON DELIVERY ALLOWS LOW-LEVEL GROUND ATTACK WITHOUT THE NEED FOR AIRCRAFT POP-UP. THE SURVIVABILITY OF THIS APPROACH IN COMPARISON WITH A CONVENTIONAL CONCEPT SUCH AS LANTIRN WILL BE DETERMINED BY MEANS OF SIMULATION ANALYSIS.
