Abstract:

The original work plan for this study envisioned the linear sequence of activities shown in Figure 2, a schedule prepared in August, 1987, before the contract was awarded. As the study evolved, however, tasking followed much more of an iterative path than a sequential one. These iterations were strongly driven by the demonstration scenario development. Analyzing the real time activities of aircraft under simulated Automated Tactical Aircraft Launch and Recovery System ATALARS control highlighted the information that needed to be exchanged. Further, since the Enhanced JTIDS System Exerciser EJSE is designed to be a JTIDS network participant, the JTIDS message requirements for ATALARS were quickly identified, because the messages are the most readily available vehicle for information exchange between controlled aircraft and the ground controller. Finally, even the process of identifying the ATALARS algorithms became easier when analysts could assess situations which would evolve on the EJSE. SDW
