Abstract
In Phase 2, our Phase 1 version of the Automated Mission Planning System (AMPS) will be modified and expanded to generate contingency plans to handle unexpected problems such as popup threats or electrical and mechanical failures in UAV/UCAVs. The new software system must be adaptive and can react quickly to changes detected in the situation context. Conventional contingency plans are generated by human operators. The process is tedious, time consuming, and does not respond to unexpected situations quickly. In addition, plans generated by inexperienced operators under high pressure environments are not optimal. The new Advanced AMPS (called AAMPS) to be developed in Phase II will eventually need to interface with the Navy Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS) to obtain the required inputs for its reasoning algorithms, and its contingency plans will be published through Web Services to the concerned users (e.g., BAMS and Global Hawk).
