Abstract:

One of the most significant contributions to the Command and Control C2 process is the input of high quality intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and recognition ISTAR information, in a timely manner. In the past, the operational analysis OA to support this ISTAR capability has used detailed and explicit modelling, this was inflexible, lengthy, and costly to run. A novel and more abstract approach to the assessment of ISTAR capabilities and sensor mixes has been developed, which removes the need for detailed terrain data and explicit platform-level sensor and target deployments. This paper outlines the model, and presents some example output.
