Abstract : Modern data processing technology with greatly enhanced capabilities is being used in both the airborne and ground-based segments of the NATO Air Forces. A key element in the interface between these segments is provided by the mission planning systems which are used to analyse, fuse and refine the information at air bases. This information is used to generate the mission plans before they are loaded into the aircraft's avionics system for use during the mission. The synergy of modern avionics systems and ground-based data networks cannot be fully realized unless mission data are provided effectively and rapidly to aircraft before the mission is commenced. Aircrew workloads must be minimized, both before and during flight, by the development of user friendly planning systems which incorporate rehearsal facilities. The report from Joint Working Group 15, 'Mission Planning Systems for Tactical Aircraft', will be used as the basis for this Lecture Series. The aim of Lecture Series 192 is to present some of the design and engineering aspects of mission planning systems, with particular emphasis on human factors considerations. Examples of modem mission planning and rehearsal systems will be described. This Lecture Series, sponsored by the Avionics Panel of AGARD, has been implemented by the Consultant and Exchange Programme.
