Paper Abstract

Dynamic Course Of Action Analysis integrates the Predictive Battlespace Awareness process with the air battle plan to predict the likelihood of Time Sensitive Target occurrence, the likelihood of their discovery, the likelihood that, once discovered, they can be successfully attacked, and the overall probability that TSTs can be successfully countered given the configuration of the daily air battle plan. The Dynamic Course Of Action Decision-aid is a tool that generates predictions and presents them in the form of probabilistic maps, indicating the likelihood of TST occurrence in a given geographical area and the Strike and ISR coverage in those areas. These maps are overlaid on a situational display to provide operators information regarding "gaps" in TST coverage. This paper addresses the problem of properly anticipating TSTs, develops prediction models that assist in the decision making process, and defines the DCOAD architecture. DCOAD's architecture consists of three major components; the graphical user interface, the shared data services, and the estimator framework. These fit into the paradigm of the model-view-controller architecture used in most graphical applications.
