Back Integration of Operational-Level Optimization Decision Aids in the Next Generation

This collaborative research is intended to produce, develop, evaluate and deliver complete, operational prototypes of various, optimization-based planning systems for supporting the Maritime Operational Center (MOC) and Maritime Headquarters planning staff in a wide range of maritime operational missions. Strike; Information, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance; Theater Ballistic Missile Defense; Anti-submarine Warfare; Logistics routing; Transit planning; Maritime Interdiction Operations. These planners are envisioned to be integrated, ultimately, into a larger Command and Control (C2) planning suite to provide local staff with the ability to quickly, generate course of actions based on concepts of operations, and potential enemy courses of actions for further evaluation.
Partners intend to jointly research and develop a series of optimization-based decision-support tools to aid in operational maritime mission planning. An additional goal is for any developed decision aids to be incorporated into a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) that will integrate and display its situational and operational data by applying optimization to discover and recommend a best course of action from which the planner can choose.
