Abstract: In complex tactical scenarios, mission planners are often confronted with mission goals and operational environment restrictions that limit their options. High cognitive workloads produced by manual assessments and operational concerns increase tactical decision timeframes. To address these problems and support mission planning and operations within National and Foreign Airspaces, Space, Maritime, and Land domains, mission planners need automated planning assistance which can quickly animate (visualize) the routes and mission plans and the tactical risks to personnel and property. To maintain the tactical initiative, Mission planners and Battle Management Aids must optimize mission performance in faster than real-time under dynamic, multi-variable conditions allowing Mission Commanders to initiate tactical actions on their terms. LG-RAID addresses these shortcomings. Using LG-Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a multi-domain mission planner, LG-RAID constructs an optimal 4D, geo-rectified, animated overlay that provides entity visualization and predictive Course of Action analysis capability for dynamic, multi-variable conditions within seconds on a standard desktop computer.
Benefits: (1) What is the first non-DoD product that this technology will go into? This product will be useful in the commercial / civilian delivery, and Law Enforcement (LE) domains as a UAS Planner and possible controller. (2) Who will be the customers, and what is the estimated market size? ƒ?› This market is estimated to exceed 20K licenses for LE ƒ?" delivery applications should exceed 100K licenses in 5 years. (3) How much money will be needed to bring the technology to market, and how will that money be raised? ƒ?› Approximately $6 million and 2 years, would be needed to fully model the LE and delivery domain including their unmanned systems. These funds would be raised by using commercial credit (loans), research investments from LE, and product sales. (4) Does the company contain marketing expertise and, if not, how will that expertise be brought into the company? ƒ?› Yes, STILMAN has in-house marketing expertise. Additional support can be provided by consultants and sub-contractors on a case-by-case basis. (5) Who are the proposing firmƒ?Ts competitors, and what is the price and/or quality advantage over those competitors? ƒ?› There are no direct competitors providing an ƒ?oLG-basedƒ?? solution. If they entered the market tomorrow, their ramp up and learning curve would be extremely steep. It is anticipated that it would take at least 4 or 5 years (and $25 ƒ?" $30M) to produce an equivalent capability.
