Research Institution
The Marine Assessment Decision Planning Tool for Protected Species (MADPT PS) will integrate existing databases into a single tool to support operational mission planning and risk assessments to protected marine species. Our approach to the development of the functional components of the MADPT PS software is the use of services oriented architecture (SOA) and data model mediation capabilities of enterprise service bus (ESB) components of emerging enterprise-level software architectures. This approach enables our team to leverage a significant source of new capabilities that provide innovative data model, data mediation, service oriented architecture development, display frameworks, and re-use of business logic functional components. The MADPT PS software will support pre-mission risk assessments. In addition, our approach will support post mission validation of risk assessments using in-situ environmentals, ship tracks, and actual sonar transmissions for ship and aircraft. The marine species sighting software, a sub module will reduce manpower requirements related to sighting of marine species during active exercise. The transition of this capability into the Undersea Warfare Decision Support System (USW-DSS) provides a clear path for operational transition into the fleet to support environmental and mission planning communities.
