Systems Technology, Inc. proposes to create the Combat Airspace Visualization and Planning System (CAVAPS), a deployable battlespace visualization system that will run on PC-based notebook computers, under the Windows,¿ operating system. This system will bridge the gap between 2D mission planning intelligence data and 3D flight simulation by importing flight planning data from the Portable Flight Planning System (PFPS) and displaying the data as 3D elements superimposed over a high fidelity 3D terrain model, providing out-of-the-cockpit pilot¿¿s eye-view and other views of the anticipated battlespace. In addition, CAVAPS will provide the ability to add simulated hostile and friendly air and ground forces to the visualized battlespace. CAVAPS will also accept flight data (i.e. aircraft trajectories, threat encounters, combat and other events) from completed simulations and display it in the same fashion, to enhance post-simulation mission analysis and debriefing. The Phase I work will result in system requirements for CAVAPS, as well as a concept demonstrator that will exhibit the feasibility of integrating the CAVAPS with existing mission planning tools and simulation databases. The concept demonstrator will also illustrate some of the added functionality that can be included in CAVAPS to enhance mission planning and rehearsal.
