Abstract:

In todays volatile world, it is necessary to provide decision makers with every advantage when dealing with a dynamic and changing adversary. Decision makers require a capability that would enable them to anticipate and shape the battlespace, i.e. an anticipatory environment AE. This capability would lead to more proactive, vice reactive, decision making in future military missions. An AE proof of concept framework has been developed that encompasses the first four phases of the Joint Air Estimate Process JAEP, as defined in Joint Publication 3-30, Command and Control for Joint Air Operations. The framework provides the foundation to perform mission analysis, situation and course of action COA development, COA analysis, COA comparison, and aids in COA selection. This paper presents the tools, technologies and the integration of the necessary capabilities to create an AE. Utilizing a simple scenario, containing friendly and adversary entities, the AE framework will be demonstrated along with a discussion of the results.
