Abstract : DSTO provided support to an Army trial aimed at evaluating the operational concepts involved in deploying Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Unattended Ground Sensors (UGSs) in northern Australia. The work described in this report was a component of the overall DSTO trial support and the purpose was to demonstrate how Information Technology could be utilised to support the operation of UAVs. To this end, a prototype Mission Analysis and Planning Support System (MAPSS) has been developed. MAPSS is a computer-based information management system for storing, managing, processing and displaying information required in the operation of UAVs.
