Data Fusion for USW Common Tactical Picture
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
This proposal addresses the challenges presented by multiple tactical pictures being fielded via various Navy systems that attempt to provide a"Common Tactical Picture"(CTP). These systems include CV-TSC, USW-DSS, SQQ-89/CADRT, GCCS-M, AEGIS, SSDS, CFn and SWFTS. These redundant and overlapping capabilities ultimately require operators to mentally visualize a hybrid CTP since no single system or display provides the complete, timely, and accurate CTP needed to effectively conduct the ASW mission. Adaptive Methods proposes a Sailor-centric approach for concept definition, ASW systems engineering, and CTP algorithm development and automation. The primary objective of this proposal is to provide the capability for the ASW Commander to develop and share an accurate, real-time Common Tactical Picture (CTP) that conveys his intent with minimal workload on operators across the Force. During the Phase I effort, work was focused on documenting workflows for the CTP, identifying the information needed at the decisions points and how this information will be carried. Ultimately we defined a methodology for creating and automatically distributing the CTP. In the proposed Phase II effort, the objective is to design and build a prototype of the CTP methodology and conduct additional research for implementation for a persistent Master Tactical Plot.
