Abstract
THE PROPOSED EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP A CONCEPT AND A PLAN FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT FOR AN IMPROVED METHODOLOGY OF THREAT ASSESSMENT/ POTENTIAL FOR USE BY THE D/NAPS MISSION PLANNER. THE PROPOSED APPROACH IS TO USE THE THREAT EXPERT ANALYSIS SYSTERM (TEAS) CONCEPT DEVELOPED UNDER CONTRACT TO WPAFB AS A STARTING POINT FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A MISSION PLANNER ALGORITHM. TEAS IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE FIGHTER AIRCRAFT WITH AN INTEGRATED DEFENSIVE RESPONSE TO AN INBOUND THREAT MISSILE. TEAS UTILIZED ALL AVAILABLE ASSETS INCLUDING EARLY MANEUVER, SEEKER DEFEATING MIDCOURSE MANEUVERS, ENDGAME MANEUVERS, EXPENDABLES, ONBOARD ECM AND COMBINATIONS OF THESE. A LIST OF EFFECTIVE OPTIONS IS GENERATED WITH EACH POTENTIAL DEFENSIVE OPTION EVALUATED AS TO ITS IMPACT ON THE MISSION AND ITS FEASIBILITY/ DESIRABILITY GIVEN CURRENT AIRCRAFT STATUS AND CONFIGURATIONS. A RECOMMENDED RESPONSE IS PRESENTED TO THE PILOT WITHIN 1 SECOND OF THE TEAS ALGORITHM BEING INITIATED. FAAC PROPOSES TO ADAPT THE TEAS TECHNOLOGY TO HELICOPTER DEFENSIVE TACTICS AND TO A PRE-LAUNCH, LOOK-AHEAD MODE CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING ROUTE EVALUATION/SELECTION BY THE MISSION PLANNER. USE OF TEAS WOULD ALLOW THE MISSION PLANNER TO ASSESS THE SURVIVABILITY OF A THREAT ENCOUNTER (ASSUMING THE THREAT CANNOT BE AVOIDED BY A ROUTE CHANGE) AND DETERMINE WHAT TACTIC TO BUILD INTO THE MISSION PLAN TO INSURE DEFEAT OF A LAUNCHED MISSILE.
