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.
Strategic Worldwide Integration Capability
ACO/ATO Generation and Execution for AOC Operations
SWIC® is a comprehensive Strategy-through-Assessment Command and Control (C2) application designed for Operations Centers to intelligently link requests, effects, operational guidance and supporting tasks within a user-friendly, temporal and geospatial, unified database environment. SWIC supports the planning and execution of operational missions by multiple USAF customers in both air and cyber C2 environments. SWIC complies with service oriented architecture (SOA) and DoD network-centric standards while incorporating PC-based applications, web-based capabilities and web services integrated with third party systems.
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.
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.
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.
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.
