SAUNA - Situation Awareness UDOP for the Nuclear Arsenal
ABSTRACT: The Defense Science Board, in addressing the loss of focus, describes the reduction in the rank/level of accountable individuals (from the end of the Cold war to today), stating"There has been little change in focus at the operating levels in the Navy and in the ICBM force up through the numbered air force (20th Air Force). Otherwise, the decline is characteristics across the DoD."And, they conclude,"Still, when this occurs across virtually all of the relevant headquarters, the aggregate result is a precipitous decrease in attention to the nuclear enterprise."Our proposed Situation Awareness UDOP for the Nuclear Arsenal (SAUNA) Phase I plan includes requirements definition, architecture assessment, and evolution of our existing data handling model in order to derive an operationally-focused solution that is cost effective, demonstrable and most of all operationally practical. As part of this SBIR project, TDKC will apply the User-Definable Operational Picture (UDOP) and service-oriented architecture (SOA) approach used for the Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC) Mission System (JMS) to create a flexible, extensible capability that has already delivered situation awareness in both the air and space domains. BENEFIT: SAUNA has direct application to current Air Force programs including the JSpOC Mission System (JMS). The tools and research had direct application to other domains including homeland defense, state and local emergency operations, and others.
