The overall objective of this BAA is to design, develop and demonstrate a capability for continuous effects-based execution and assessment in a dynamic tasking environment. This program will employ, exploit and develop as necessary technologies to provide early demonstrations and potential transitions to operational units. It will also enhance existing and maturing technologies and provide for spiral development and interaction with other ongoing Air Force programs. Familiarity with initiatives that are focused on dynamic tasking and effects based assessment, as well as those technologies that are necessary to support these functions (e.g. multi-INT fusion) are desirable. Specific efforts targeted for collaboration include: 1. the Command and Control Battle Lab's T-BONE effort which is focused on rewriting the Theater Air Planning (TAP) capability and the Air Operations Database (AODB). 2. Air Combat Command's Effects Based Assessment initiative. 3. DARPA's JAGUAR (Joint Air-Ground Unified Adaptive Re-planning) program. 4. AFRL's PANACIA (Predictive Awareness and Network-Centric Analysis for Collaborative Intel Assessment). And 5. AFRL/HE's AOC Strategy Planning and Operational Effects Assessment Visualization Effort (04-01-HE-04). In addition to direct technology developments this program will support other complimentary activities including test and evaluation, modeling and simulation, and data collection and management.
