Mission Planning Objectives Mission Planning requires a continuous evaluation of the battlespace Maritime, Land, Air, Space, Information, Electromagnetic, and Time balancing competing objectives, while continuously coordinating, synchronizing, and prioritizing activities to support the Field Commander in deployment of Force Elements.Information drives Mission Planning activities. Without information, Mission Planning cannot be performed with any hope of success. Mission Planning Software is developed to capture information in order to 1 display the battlespace for Situational Awareness and 2 to augment the decision-making process in the pursuit of Mission Goals. In more advanced systems Mission Planning is used to deliver Adaptive Command and Control for Battlespace Management for active field operations. It is also used for testing purposes in a Modeling and Simulation M and S or Live, Virtual, Constructive LVC environment prior to deployment in order to evaluate risks or develop and test new tactics and strategies.This paper separates Mission Planning Software into two domains1. Rendering of the area of operation Providing a high level graphical view of the area of operation2. Decision-making Operational Policy Development, Testing, Executing, and AuditingThis paper focuses on the decision-making component 2 with the use of Knowledge Enhanced Electronic logic KEEL Technology, and not on creating a picture of the area of operation 1.
