Abstract : The proposed mission planning station described in this paper is a result of a Naval Weapons Center discretionary funded study peformed in conjunction with the AV-8B Program Office in 1985. The approach described draws heavily on the development and deployment of digital map techonology for use on modern attack aircraft. The characteristics of the digital map are derived from a draft product specification currently being prepared for submission to the Defense Mapping Agency (DMA), and the AV-8B requirements document for a digital map capability. The envisioned digital map would utilize optical disk storage for the map, and additional solid state storage for the annotation generated by the planning station. The mission planning station is shown in three configurations ranging from a baseline capability (which may even be appropriate for an individual aircraft), up to a fully capable station capable of interacting with other digital data bases and even generating its own optical disk.
