ATO Link: A Link Analysis and Information Dominance Tool for ATO Planning
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
"The objective of this Phase I effort is to produce "ATO Link", an operational link analysis prototype, that can predict and identify planning and re-planning conflicts during the ATO (Air Tasking Order) planning process. The analyst will have thecapability to perform many "what if" scenarios and ATO Link will determine if there would be any future potential plan conflicts.ATO Link extends our current Phase II SBIR with Rome Labs in the area of linkanalysis for terrorist detection and complements our machine learning developments as a contractor for the Darpa Ultra*Log program.Such a capability has wide applicability and can be exploited not only by the logistics planner, but can be integrated into simulations for training purposes or be used as a tool in the Joint Battlespace Initiative (JBI).As noted within Joint Vision 2020, there is a great need within the military community for developing information dominant systems. Such systems provide userswith "amplified knowledge" of the existing operational environment; link analysis is such an example of a tool. Commercial and military organizations spend billions of dollars in logistics per year. Information dominant tools that can accurately andeffectively exploit the supply chain can be successfully inserted and exploitedwithin this market."
