Research Institution
An individual ATO may become very large and complex because of the scope of a mission. The scale of information significantly challenges mission planners to ensure the availability of necessary equipment, configurations, and personnel at locations within reach of the mission target. Optimal flight route and re-planning requires finding time-sensitive routes from sortie base locations to targets that avoid restricted airspaces and account for continually changing weather and threat positions. 3 Sigma Research develops a novel solution called the Semantic Air Tasking Order Reasoner (SATOR) to organize and search for mission information for individual for Air Tasking Orders (ATO). The benefits of our unique solution include 1) human-like reasoning to find aircraft, configurations, personnel, and other resources required by the ATO, 2) optimal flight route planning for mission sorties, and 3) real time alerts to notify mission planners and pilots.
