Abstract
The objective of the proposed work is to develop a Mine Drift Prediction Tactical decision Aid (MDP-TDA) that can ingest all pertinient information from US Navy systems and enable MCM planning and operations in areas threatened by surface and near-surface drifting mines. The MDP-TDA will comprise a loosely coupled system of systems that allows operatioanl end users to interact with and create data, initiate numerical transport models and create analysis products, all via a Web-based Toolkit. The proposed solution involves considerable reuse of existing software architecture and operational code, limiting the effort on software engineering and increaing the effort on MDP-TDA specific capabilities and models, such as calculation of spatio-temporal mine encounter probability fields and optimization algorithms for the MCM and ship TDA modules.
