This leading provider of signal processing technologies developed an automated mission planning software tool to interface with the Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS). Developed from expertise unique to this firm, the system has been validated in a laboratory environment to generate contingency plans in five minutes to handle unexpected problems, such as popup threats or electrical and mechanical failures in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The software system is adaptive and quick to react to changes detected in the situation context. The contingency plans will be published through web services to the users. The company seeks program offices to fund the adaptation of this project to other applications such as UAV programs in the Army and Air Force, weather research, coastal monitoring and border patrol.
