Abstract
Sonalysts will demonstrate the feasibility of developing a Course of Action Rehearsal, Visualization, and Evaluation Tool (COARVET), which will allow users to analyze possible outcomes of pending operations, conduct mission rehearsals, and perform After-Action Reviews (AARs) of past missions. This research will produce a design and prototype interfaces for a system that enables operators from squadron level to the Air Operations Center to increase unit effectiveness through superior planning, mission rehearsal, and lessons learned from AAR. The design for COARVET will draw on Sonalysts successful gaming engine and wXstationr family of weather products to integrate planning and simulation with the best data sources in a coherent way to improve war-fighting capability as well as forest firefighting. BENEFIT: The product we develop will improve unit effectiveness through improved mission planning, course of action analysis, execution, and AAR. It will also have outstanding potential in the commercial sector, with applications in Homeland Security. A quick transition to forest firefighting is anticipated. Our teaming partner Boeing believes the resultant technology could have direct application to several Boeing programs, including Future Combat Systems, SBINet, and the air space control systems being implemented in Iraq.
