Abstract
Adaptive Methods, teamed with Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation (NASC), proposes to develop algorithms for a Tactical Decision Aid (TDA) capable of adaptively tracking and predicting the locations of drifting mines. The TDA is capable of optimizing Mine Counter Measure (MCM) asset deployment plans and producing maneuver routes that minimize ship risks. Our approach develops new technologies for a MIW TDA which provides mine drift prediction and MIW planning by: leveraging and adapting. This approach leverages Navmar Applied Science Corporation"s capabilities and experience in sonobuoy drift prediction; and by adapts the Adaptive Methods"existing Context-aware Multi-Objective Planner (CMOP). The effort will demonstrate the feasibility of combining a drift mine prediction tracker with a multi-objective planner to provide a MIW TDA which will reduce the manpower needed to develop safe and effective MCM plans.
