Abstract
Guidestar will identify the factors and data needed for a Free Space Optical (FSO) communications planning tool (FSO-PLAN), as well as the desired end data product.The sources for this data will be identified and the method and interfaces for obtaining the data will be determined.Guidestar plans to use Government data sources as well as commercially available data sources.Guidestar will develop the architecture for the FSO-PLAN tool that provides a framework for obtaining the required data, processing the data, and disseminating output data to end users withing the constraints of USAF security and Information Assurance guidelines.Any data gaps will be identified in this Phase I work, and a plan to resolve these gaps within 12 months will be developed.
