Abstract:

During carrier-based aircraft mission planning, threat data is currently subject to repeated, manual transcription as it is repeatedly hand-typed into Joint Mission Planning Software (JMPS), Microsoft Excel, and other tools. This creates several mission risks, including: Data transcription into some software takes an enormous amount of time, in some cases well over an hour. As a consequence, strike package route selection can be delayed. This poses an obvious mission risk. Additionally, manual data transcription introduces the risk of typographical errors in key parameters such as a threat"s GPS coordinates. Finally, to mitigate transcription risk, the mission planning process includes a final manual Quality Assurance (QA) pass over the plans. This is time consuming and inefficient, significantly contributing to the 6-hour planning time. Jaybridge Robotics develops the Strike Assisting Planning Software (STRAPS) tool. STRAPS provides a modern, collaborative network-based toolchain addressing key information management problems to increase mission planning efficiency and reduce risk of error and omission during planning. In this Phase II.5 project, Jaybridge will develop a new component for STRAPS, the Threat Manager (THM) component, which is designed to address the threat data management problems described.
