Abstract:

The overall objective of this Phase I project was to provide a Netted Full Spectrum Sensor NFSS Operations Management Systems OMS for engineering decision-makers to perform tradeoffs in sensor requirements and design parameters, and to support staff officer decisions in real-time mission planning and and execution. The NFSS system will support a full suite of state-of-the-art ground based and air delivered multi-intelligence sensors to provide full coverage of the MASINT spectrum. PSI developed the architecture design for the NFSS-OMS, and identified needed modules to ensure tasking and missions of disparate MASINT operational sensors are coordinated by the NFSS. The architecture also provides a Common Operating Picture of the battlefield with the information derived from the sensor systems. The NFSS-OMS is also designed to support mission planning for both pre and post deployment to optimize sensor emplacement, tasking, and information gathered. In building the OMS architecture, PSI demonstrated how its advanced CAD technology provides for rapid development and support of complex real-time control systems. Existing models were combined using the General Simulation System GSS and Run-Time Graphics RTG capabilities to produce a simulation that demonstrated how the NFSS-OMS would work, and that provides a firm foundation for further development in Phase II.
