Abstract
To maximize the strike effectiveness of multiple disparate manned and unmanned platforms"while minimizing the potential damage to the strike force from the defenders in a high threat environment, we propose to develop REal-time Mission And Path Planner (REMAPP) that will provide secure routes of ingress and egress to designated targets. The generated routes will provide the necessary coverage from radar detection, identification and acquisition by enemy air defense systems by using the aircrafts"active (e.g. self-protecting electronic countermeasures, standoff jammers, other SEAD measures) and passive techniques (terrain masking) of radar avoidance. Moreover, when a new threat is detected by on-board or off-board sensors, REMAPP will re-plan in real time increasing the survivability of the strike force. The proposed approach will be centered around Linear Temporal Logic (LTL) which is a very powerful specification language that provides a very natural way to model the rules of engagement and multi-platform coordination and Rapidly-Exploring Random Trees (RRTs) that are suitable for a real-time path planning in complex, high constrained environments. REMAPP will benefit from mission specifications expressed in very general forms, combining and recombining information to pursuit myriad purposes which is extremely important for dynamically changing environments such as pop-up threats.
