Abstract
The goal of this project is to provide Air Operations Managers with the ability to build and dynamically adjust an Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) plan. The output ISR tasking plan must meet the collection requirements necessary to develop the intelligence preparation of the battlefield and gather effects-based objective indicator data. The proposed system, ISR-Stream, will integrate with ATO-Stream to expand the ATO constraint graph into supporting the planning of ISR assets. ISR-Stream utilizes Genetic Algorithms to determine the optimal ISR asset layouts, collection resources, and alternative collection paths. Genetic Algorithms can quickly consider a large amount of trade-offs and constraints, and generate a viable plan. The system will also work to dynamically coordinate the ISR collection plans with other attack plans (ground, air, cyber, etc.)
