Abstract
Today's ATO process is inherently complex, and the complexity increases as the Air Force moves to Effects-based Operations (EBO) and dynamic tasking. To support these next generation Air Tasking requirements, 21st Century Technologies and C3I Associates present ATO-Stream, a capability, leveraging previous work, that takes a continuous stream of targets, resources, and battlefield conditions and produces a continuously updated Air Tasking Order (ATO). Our Phase I ATO-Stream prototype will accomplish these aggressive requirements by designing and implementing technical innovations that allow the ATO process to accept streaming inputs and output updated ATO plans based on considerations such as pop-up targeting opportunities, and other dynamic information (e.g., weather and target classes). ATO-stream will dynamically consider competing and changing priorities and account for changes in the status of Air resources. 21st Century Technologies can leverage, ATO-Link, a system developed under SBIR Phase II+ contract, that has been delivered to C2 Battlelabs and successfully evaluated for AOC use, as a basis for the working prototype to be delivered in this effort.
