Abstract
"The objective of this research is to research alternatives of a total planning system solution for use of environmental sensor data for the tactical ASW warfighter. The software will plan an integrated deployment strategy for both environmental andtactical sensors prior to takeoff. It will run rapidly and take into account trade-offs of using environmental sensors. During the flight the software will provide for processing and assimilation of the measured data, recalculation of the pattern basedupon environmental inputs, and use of the inputs to improve performance. Finally, post-mission reconstruction and data archiving and dissemination will be provided. The software will interact with existing models, equipment, and databases withoutinterference. It will easily ingest environmental data from a variety of sources as well as output to similar databases. It will be cross-platform compatible, web-enabled, and employ efficient code development/reuse by being written in JavaBeans andusing CORBA. Designs of GUIs will include forethought to allow the operator to understand the reasoning behind recommendations. The prediction of reduction in uncertainty of environmental measurements can benefit not only the Navy but also anyorganization that wants to better measure the ocean environment. The system level design of the tactical ASW environmental mission planner could also benefit coastal weather prediction. As part of the Coastal
