Abstract
In today's asymmetric warfare, there is a clear need to accelerate the flow of weapons from magazine to aircraft. This involves developing a semi-automated system that will significantly improve ordnance handling aboard air-capable ships. This system should prepare a Weapons Handling Plan using as much autonomy as the Weapons Department personnel are comfortable with, from collaborative software aid to near complete autonomy. 21st Century Systems, Incorporated is pleased to introduce OHMAS, "Ordnance Handling MultiAgent System." OHMAS's heart is the Interactive Weapons Handling Plan (IWHP), which can be thought of as equal parts of spreadsheet, map, application menu, and weapons handling scheduler and planner. The IWHP utilizes leading edge technologies and is accessible as a web service. The IWHP collaborates with other Virtual Ordnance Handling Agents (VOHA) in order to construct a weapons handling plan. Each VOHA contains a knowledge model which encapsulates the decision processes of an Ordnance Handling Officer as he constructs and executes a Weapons Handling Plan. The optimal weapon routes through the ship are determined by an innovative space-time path finding algorithm, which handles several weapons simultaneously. And with a 100th percentile commercialization rating, we are just the company to deliver this capability to the warfighter.
