Military air operations require planning and execution tools that allow the operator to develop and monitor coordinated plans capable of satisfying commanders’ objectives and desired effects. Operators of these applications demand visualization capabilities tailored for managing mission activities in both time and space while controlling an increasingly complex inventory of air assets, weapons, and other resources. ISS assists the warfighter via automated battlespace awareness, mission task recommendations and deconfliction warnings. A user-friendly interface offers graphically-based drag-and-drop planning, assisted planning wizards, and mission flyability notifications. Air Operations Center (AOC) personnel are then capable of producing and executing more tactically sound missions, requiring less time and less personnel.
ISS delivers information-rich and graphically intensive mission planning, execution, and assessment solutions to enable this vision. Our applications were the first to introduce the advanced mission planning capabilities mentioned above into the AOC planning process. We also provide the only AOC airspace application capable of managing Global Area Reference grid airspaces, and capable of producing fully-compliant USMTF 2004 Air Tasking Order (ATO) and Airspace Control Order (ATO) messages. As emerging resources such as Network Enabled Weapons (NEW) are introduced into air operations planning, ISS applications are already evolving to include the coordination and tasking of advanced (or next-generation) weapons within the Master Air Attack Plan (MAAP).
Our combination of battle-tested, air operations subject matter expertise coupled with advanced software development personnel distinguishes ISS from the competition. Our personnel work directly with operator inputs while rapidly developing configurable and reusable applications capable of delivery to both United States and international customers. By scaling from a single-user laptop application to a full-scale AOC enterprise capability, ISS solutions are flexible enough to adapt to real-world air operations environments and can be used for both peacetime training activities as well as during conflict operations.
