Conops decision paths l.jpg

CONOPS - Decision Paths

  • Document content and organization considerations

    • Evaluated multiple CONOPS examples

      • NGATS CONOPS

      • NGATS Weather CONOPS

      • Surveillance and Broadcast Services CONOPS (i.e., ADS-B)

      • Future Terminal Area CONOPS (i.e., DTASS)

      • CONOPS and Operational Requirements for WSR-88D Dual Polarization

      • Business Continuity Plan En Route Services CONOPS

      • NAS CONOPS

      • Others

    • Explored different templates

      • FAA Operational Concept Template, Version 1.0 (May 1999)

      • FAA NAS Systems Engineering Manual

      • NWS Operations and Services Improvement Process (OSIP) Concept of Operations and Operational Requirements Template


Faa s system engineering manual sem conops hierarchy l.jpg

FAA’s System Engineering Manual (SEM) - CONOPS Hierarchy

Where does the MPAR CONOPS fall?

Answer:

Tailored hybrid of CONOPS and CONUSE


Faa s system engineering manual sem conops hierarchy7 l.jpg

FAA’s System Engineering Manual (SEM) - CONOPS Hierarchy

  • CONOPS (Service-Level)

    • Provides conceptual insight into a particular service of the integrated operational environment (e.g., nav, surv, comm)

    • Identifies current shortfalls and future needs

    • Identifies capabilities required for a specific service (without identifying specific technologies)

    • May use Operational Scenarios to illustrate desired operational concept

    • Provides a user perspective

    • Not system specific

  • CONUSE

    • Extension of CONOPS with emphasis on specific system and its operating environment

    • Describes functional characteristics (i.e., stakeholder’s needs) of a proposed system from a user perspective

    • Tells a story using visual forms (diagrams, illustrations, graphs) and storyboards

    • Describes the user’s general system goals, mission, function, and components

  • MPAR CONOPS

    • Hybrid of a CONOPS and CONUSE

Working group tasks l.jpg

Working Group Tasks

  • Define Document scope, organization, and outline

  • Develop Operational Scenarios and other visual forms to facilitate understanding of MPAR operation

  • Identify agency mission shortfalls that should be addressed by this solution

  • Expect MPAR CONOPS to be a “living” document

  • Working Group Meeting tentatively scheduled for July

    • Baseline organization of document

    • Finalize initial operational scenarios

    • Begin assigning sections to individuals/agencies


Issues decision points l.jpg

Issues/Decision Points

  • How should the document be bound?

  • What capability is the solution required to deliver?

  • Need to identify additional agency SMEs (e.g., DHS, DOD, etc.) to provide input
