Abstract:

This report documents the Moving Map Composer MMC software system developed by scientists in NRL Code 7441. The MMC software is resident on the AV-8B Map 2 Station, which NRL designed and configured in support of AV-8B mission planners and pilots in the field. These MMC driven Map 2 Stations enable AV-8B users to perform the following functions 1 Design and build Aircraft Optical Disk AOD images from user specified Compressed Aeronautical Chart CAC and scanned chart data 2 Include emergency check lists and reconnaissance photographs in an AOD image 3 Write completed AOD images to militarized Write Once Read Many AODs 4 Evaluate failed AODs and recover from failed AOD image builds 5 Design and build Mission Planning System Compact Disk Images MPS CDIs from user specified CAC, scanned chart, and DTED data 6 Write MPS CDIs to Recordable Compact Disk CD-R for mission planning purposes and 7 Scan and compress paper charts into a CAC compatible format when CAC or Arc Digitized Raster Graphics ADRG are not available and include them in an AOD image or MPS-CDI. These Map 2 Stations will completely replace all map data functions and all optical disk image functions that are currently handled by the AV-8B Map, Operator, and Maintenance Stations MOMS.
