Low-cost sensor technologies, such as Micro-Aerial Vehicles MAVs, present an opportunity to facilitate improved transformational Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance Targeting, and Information Operations ISRTIO capabilities in support of tactical network-centric ISRTIO Warfighter and First-Responder operations. There is an exigency for realistic rehearsal frameworks to enable efficient and rapid deployment of MAVs in support of ISRTIO physics-based 3D simulation and modeling capabilities improve mission planning and efficiency. The incorporation of Free Open Source Software FOSS such as the Naval Postgraduate School NPS Autonomous Unmanned Vehicle AUV workbench into the Sensor-net Self-Organization and Control SenSOC initiative enables highly reconfigurable realistic and dynamic mission planning capabilities thereby creating more responsive Systems-of-Systems Engineering SOSE. The current work, reported herein, focuses on the incorporation of a scalable sensor-package in the NPS AUV platform-oriented modeling, simulation, and experimentation framework which would support operational use-cases and CONOPS i.e. concepts of operation for tactical ISRTIO mission-threads and associated scenarios.
