outline
Outline
  • Background
  • A Military Perspective of DP&E
  • Conceptual Model
  • Example Application Domains
  • Issues & Challenges
  • Conclusions
background
Background
  • Summation of TTCP AG1 work
the technical cooperation program
The Technical Cooperation Program
  • Formed in 1957
  • Aim – to foster cooperation in the science and technology needed for conventional national defence
  • Purpose – to enhance national defence at reduced cost
  • TTCP Nations – AUS, CAN, NZ, UK, US
  • Action Group 1 formed in 2003
background 2
Background (2)
  • Summation of TTCP AG1 work
  • Contemporary Operating Environment
    • Disorder, Complexity & Uncertainty
  • Constantly changing situation
  • Agility required
  • Planning & Execution processes
a military perspective of dp e
A Military Perspective of DP&E
  • Short Study – UK operational community
  • No official definition
ag1 definition of dp e
AG1 Definition of DP&E

“The capability to continuously develop, analyse, select and flexibly execute a robust course of action based on a commander’s evolving intent, situational awareness and capabilities.”

a military perspective of dp e 2
A Military Perspective of DP&E (2)
  • Short Study – UK operational community
  • No official definition
  • Concepts & Doctrine
  • Recent Operational Experience
    • Dynamic Environment – planning time reduced
    • Planning process needs adaptation
    • Require capability to plan quickly
impact of a change in the situation
Impact of a change in the situation
  • Already alter execution – technology?
  • Information exchange: J5/J35/J3
  • Replanning takes time - speed
  • Maximum use of ‘old’ plan
  • How can technology support the human to plan quicker and better following change?
example application domains
Example Application Domains
  • Identify potential areas for collaboration
  • Common interest
    • Effects Based Operations
    • Logistics for Agile Forces
    • Wide Area Time Sensitive Airspace Coordination
  • WATSAC & DP&E
wide area time sensitive airspace coordination watsac
Wide Area Time Sensitive Airspace Coordination (WATSAC)
  • Airspace Management/Coordination
  • Resolution of conflicts
    • Deconfliction of airspace during initial planning
    • Centralised, inefficient process
  • Improvements in technology
    • Near real time plan representation & coordination
    • Dynamic airspace deconfliction
    • Cooperative airborne ISR missions
issues challenges
Issues & Challenges

Issues central to having a DP&E capability:

  • Subjectivity
  • Static Representation
    • Timeliness
    • Residual value
  • Coordination
issues challenges 2
Issues & Challenges (2)
  • Plan Representation Languages
    • Capture context, assumptions & decision rationale
    • Link components & levels of comd
    • Facilitation of human/machine exchanges
  • Multi Agent Coordination
    • Architectures & lack of unified framework
    • Constrained environments
    • Uncertain/open environments
conclusions
Conclusions
  • DP&E is not well understood
  • Desirable military capability
  • Richer plan representation
  • Application of coordination mechanisms
  • How can technology better enable us to execute plans in a dynamic environment?
