Abstract
The objective of this research is to develop alternatives for a total planning system solution for use of environmental sensor data for the tactical ASW warfighter. This software will be used for pre-flight planning to evaluate alternatives and develop effective tactical search plans based on available environmental data and threat data, to provide recommendations for additional insitu environmental data, and to provide an integrated executable deployment strategy for both environmental sensors and tactical sensors. The software will be required to achieve the required search performance throughout search areas where detection performance is inconsistent and against threat targets at unknown depths. The software will provide for in-flight use of measured insitu data for: pattern re-evaluation; pattern re-calculation; improved operator performance in detection and classification; post-flight mission reconstruction; and data archiving and dissemination. The software will interact with existing models, equipment, and databases without interference. 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 and using CORBA. Designs of GUIs will include forethought to allow the operator to understand the reasoning behind recommendations.
