Abstract
Scientific Systems Company"s Cruise Missile Autonomous Routing System (CMARS) for the Tomahawk Missile System has demonstrably increased the speed of route planning for multiple missiles or aircraft against multiple targets. The need exists to provide other weapons platforms within the Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS) family the same increased speed of route generation and improved route efficiency that the Tomahawk Missile System possesses as a result of CMARS incorporation. To accomplish this JMPS goal, the objective of this SBIR Phase IIa effort is to initially install CMARS into JMPS Framework 1.2.4 and, subsequently, demonstrate that new, state-of-theart Genetic Algorithm (GA) representations can be incorporated into the CMARS software to extend its applicability to F/A 18 flight planning as a Generic Genetic Algorithm Autorouter (G2A2). G2A2"s integration of the F/A-18 as the lead platform will allow for more efficient integration of other platforms. The G2A2 capability will be developed as a web-service for eventual integration into JMPS Framework 1.4. Integration into the JMPS frameworks will include outlining the required G2A2 engineering to accommodate a variety of JMPS generated Flight Performance Profiles as inputs. This will be the foundation for the introduction of the G2A2 operational autorouter into JMPS by 2010.
