Abstract : TMS - the Threat Management System - is a company prototype development of a support system for the crew of fighter bombers at low level flight. In particular TMS is supposed to provide support in high dense groundbased airdefence scenarios during the (1) preparation phase, (2) penetration phase and (3) attack phase of a mission applying methods of terrain and threat avoidance combined with sensor information fusion. In reaction to growing capabilities of modern airdefence systems both groundbased airdefence scenarios during the (1) preparation phase, (2) penetration phase and (3) attack phase of a mission applying methods of terrain and threat avoidance combined with sensor information fusion. In reaction to growing capabilities of modern airdefence systems both groundbased and airborne and thus to increasing requirements for mission enforcement modern military aircraft are characterized by increasing system complexity. The composition of a growing number of demanding subsystems imposes additional workload and thus in consequence operational problems to the crew of such integrated systems. In order keep these complex systems manageable by the crew also in future operating in complex scenarios several national programs like Pilot's Associate, Mission Management Aid or Copilote Electronique have been launched to investigate solutions by applying new software technologies like Artificial Intelligence in particular knowledge based systems. TMS is a project within this scope.
