  • MAAPTK

    Master Air Attack Planning Toolkit – Collaborative ATO Planning

    MAAPTK® is a planning tool used in the Air and Space Operations Center (AOC) to develop missions for inclusion into an Air Tasking Order (ATO). MAAPTK provides near real time battlespace information that enables planners to visualize and generate battle plans that are accurate and appropriate to developing situations. Planners can view key information on tables, timelines, maps, graphs, and grids so that they can quickly understand the essential elements of a situation, and they can create the appropriate missions and packages using simple drag-and-drop operations.

    • Because the MAAPTK software minimizes the need for MAAP personnel to plot resource information manually on paper, it significantly streamlines the MAAP and ATO production process and reduces manpower requirements in the AOC
    • Provides mission planning support for Network Enabled Weapons (NEW) and produces USMTF ATONEWS and OTLNEWS messages
    • High fidelity fuel planning
    • Only application capable of producing mensurated JDPI coordinate information in T3D data format

  • NAPPIC

    National Aerospace Planning Process Integration Capability – C2Core Tailored for the Royal Canadian Air Force

    NAPPIC hosts the aerospace mission collect/plan/task/execute/assess processes of Canada’s Air Force. NAPPIC replaced capabilities previously delivered by the Theatre Battle Management Core System (TBMCS) at 1 Canadian Air Division Headquarters (1 Cdn Air Div HQ) Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in July 2010. It is used within the Combined Aerospace Operations Centre (CAOC) and at Air Force units across Canada including Air Component Coordination Elements (ACCE), wings and squadrons. NAPPIC interfaces with the Canadian Air Force Request for Effects (RFE) system and Airlift Dynamic Scheduling System (DSS) to provide seamless data flow through the NAP process. NAPPIC also has the capability to interface with Canada’s Command View C2 system to provide real-time strategic and joint situation awareness of Air Force operations.

  • ACUMEN

    Advanced Capability for Understanding and Managing Effects Networks – Strategic Planning and Automated Assessment

    ACUMEN enables strategic plan development, assessment and tracking in support of an adaptive planning process. It is a versatile, operationally fielded solution that has been electively demonstrated in multiple domains including air operations, humanitarian assistance, civil affairs, and information operations. For operations centers, ACUMEN provides a unified view of continuous effects-based planning and assessment. The ACUMEN system is a generic, structured framework that allows operators to perform strategic planning, operational assessment, data analysis, correlation and progress calculation within one tool. Additionally, ACUMEN provides the ability to integrate kinetic/non-kinetic and lethal/non-lethal operational assessments.

  • STAKE

    Strategy-to-Task Assessment of Kill-Chain Effectiveness
    STAKE coordinates ISR collection efforts with a theater operational-level strategy. STAKE provides a first-of-its-kind web-based comprehensive operations picture within a collection planning tool. Starting with a strategy-to-task Joint Air Operations Plan (JAOP), STAKE integrates key information components from other theater systems directly into the plan’s objectives and tasks including:

    • Commander guidance, indicators, and measures
    • Targets on the Joint Integrated Prioritized Target List (JIPTL)
    • Theater-wide collection requirements on the Collection Plan

    In addition to the linked components listed above, there are other items that are indirectly referenced such as Missions from Master Air Attack Planning (MAAP) and Friendly Order of Battle (FrOB). These and other indirect sources provide collection planners extended visualization and reporting capabilities.

    Using STAKE, collection planners leverage the context of the operational plan and integrated target lists to determine where ISR efforts are most needed. STAKE provides a robust capability to nominate and prioritize collection requirements with direct ties to the plan’s objectives, tasks and strike targets. System integration with PRISM creates a seamless flow of requirements in and out of STAKE for consideration in the JIPCL.

    Better Information in the Hands of the Warfighter

    At the heart of WebTAS STAKE are robust integration capabilities with the AOC Weapon System. Net-centric services allow STAKE to interface with TBMCS, MIDB, PRISM, IWPC, and other mission-critical systems. Easy to use displays in STAKE leverage integrated maps, timelines, search capabilities, and briefing generation to maximize the efficacy of ISR efforts.
    With STAKE, ISR planners have the insight and tools they need to ensure collection efforts are planned and executed in concert with strategic objectives and tasks.

    When traditional ISR assets are not available to meet collection requirements, STAKE also provides NTISR planning capabilities. Collection planners can use STAKE to find NTISR-capable missions that match their unique temporal, spatial, and sensor requirements. The resulting mission task requests are then sent to TBMCS 1.1.3 for consideration by the MAAP cell.
