Abstract:

The Naval Research Laboratory NRL was tasked by the Naval Air Systems Command NAVAIR on behalf of the Canadian Forces CF to develop a dynamic link library that would convert geotiff source files containing mission planning overlays into Compressed Arc Digitized Raster Graphics CADRG equivalent files. This dynamic link library will be integrated as part of the Tactical Aircraft Moving Map Unique Planning Component TUPC onto the Joint Mission Planning System JMPS. In 2003, NRL developed the Moving-Map Composer-Personal Computer MMCPC software system to support Finnish Air Force mission planning efforts. One MMCPC function, unique to this system, converted source geotiff Finnish map files into CADRG compatible files for display in TAMMAC. Software applicable to this function from MMCPC will be used to support the core functions of this new capability for the CF.
