Use Cases

ACO/ATO Generation and Execution for AOC Operations

The Strategic Worldwide Integration Capability (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.

  • Provides mission planning and execution monitoring with USMTF ATO/ACO output
  • Provides cyber mission operations C2
  • Offers strategy-to-task linkage
  • Provides collaborative planning and execution
  • Provides a single database with all mission-planning and execution-monitoring data
  • Provides intuitive user interfaces
  • Is lightweight, creating a small hardware resource footprint
  • Scales from one user to hundreds of users
  • Is accredited for classified network usage

C2Core Tailored for the Royal Canadian Air Force

The National Aerospace Planning Process Integration Capability (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) in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in July 2010. It is used within the Combined Aerospace Operations Centre (CAOC) and at Air Force units across Canada, to include 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.

  • Comprehensive, hierarchical strategic-planning support with mission linkages and including AOD creation/management
  • Full task management tools, to include mission templates, packages, copy from ABP, and MAAP briefing autogeneration
  • Mature execution management capability, to include mission-state/status monitoring, mission re-planning, spins publishing, and more
  • Live display of approved mission requests from the RFE database, and many-to-many pairing of mission requests to missions
  • Full FrOB/EnOB database query, visualization, and management, to include ABP, configurations, components, resources, profiles, C2 agencies, TAC Info, operating locations, and taskable units
  • Flexible mission-planning support with air-location, ground-alert, wide-area geographic, reconnaissance, C2, and direct-attack mission types
  • Intuitive tanker-planning and -management tools supporting tanker pairing and refueling contracts
  • Comprehensive airspace creation, deconfliction, management, and ACO generation tools
  • Efficient ATO production and publishing through a dedicated management interface
  • Import of airlift missions from DSS, to include new, update, and delete actions
  • Robust TBMCS interoperability, to include full USMTF 2000/2004 compliance
  • Robust intelligence/target management with MIDB 2.1 interface

Strategic Planning and Automated Assessment

The Advanced Capability for Understanding and Managing Effects Networks (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, to include 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.

  • Development and management of strategic, operational, and tactical plans
  • Support for kinetic/non-kinetic effects
  • Task-oriented, actionable, trainable, and repeated workflows
  • Ability to search across multiple data sources and plans
  • Automated briefing generation
  • Workload reduction via workflow automation
  • Performance of objective and subjective assessments
  • Identification and incorporation of existing data sources for assessment
  • Management of assessment data and supporting media (i.e., briefings, imagery, videos)
  • Automatic association of data with strategy elements
  • Ability to track and act on plan elements
  • Identification of areas of concern within a plan
  • Plan visibility across all organizational levels
  • Integration of multiple data sources via SOA

Strategy-to-Task Assessment of Killchain Effectiveness

The Strategy-to-Task Assessment of Killchain 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, to include the following:

  • 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 aforementioned linked components, 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 to and out of STAKE for consideration in the JIPCL.

Strategic Insight

At the heart of STAKE are robust integration capabilities with the AOC Weapon System. Net-centric services allow STAKE to interface with TBMCS, MIDB, PRISM, IWPC, and other mission-critical systems. Easy to use displays in STAKE leverage integrated maps, timelines, search capabilities, and briefing generation to maximize the efficacy of ISR efforts.
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.

NTISR Planning

When traditional ISR assets are not available to meet collection requirements, STAKE also provides NTISR planning capabilities. Collection planners can use STAKE to find NTISR-capable missions that match their unique temporal, spatial, and sensor requirements. The resulting mission task requests are then sent to TBMCS 1.1.3 for consideration by the MAAP cell.
