UDOP Authoring and Application of AGI Technology

Data and System Connectivity

Summary and Future Plans

gaps highlights
GAPS Highlights

Hosts visually fused Global Shared Situational Awareness services supporting agile Net-Centric Operations on NIPRNET, SIPRNET and JWICS

Provides users with a decision-focused view of operational environments

Organizes disparate C2ISR data sources for situational awareness (SA)

Enables collaboration for timely decision-making in a distributed environment

Supports USSTRATCOM’s daily operations

Highlighted in C2 Data Pilot (Phase 3) as lead integrator for DISA, JFCOM and USSTRATCOM

Selected by USAF Global Cyberspace Integration Center (GCIC) to provide demonstrations of Global Air Picture requirements

what is a udop
What is a UDOP?

UDOP = User-Defined Operational Picture

Decision-focused view of the operational environment that organizes disparate data sources to support accurate situational awareness (SA) and timely decision-making in a distributed net-centric environment

Users must be able to:

Create UDOPs (identify content to be included/excluded for the picture)

Visualize UDOPs (specify how selected content should be presented)

Augment UDOPs (derive added-value based on domain knowledge)

Tailor UDOPs (adjust contents to address needs of user/echelon)

Share UDOPs (conduct rich collaboration in a net-centric enterprise)

Overall goals

Improve stability

Improve usability

Data sources

Leverage existing loaders

Develop renderers to allow additional data sources to be used in thin client author

Support AWS Air Tracks and AWS Ground Tracks

Application functionality

Save projects to repository

Read only view of layer properties

Refresh layer to retrieve updated data items

Picking/drill through for individual data items


gaps system connectivity for stratcom
GAPS System Connectivity for STRATCOM

AFWA (Air Force Weather Agency): Observations and forecasts (clouds)

JFCC-ISR / DIOCC: ISR Asset Allocation & Maintenance

NGA GVS (Geospatial Visualization Services): Base map data

SISP (Single Integrated Space Picture): Satellite Element-sets

SKIWeb : Geo-events of interest

FSR (Force Status Readiness) : ICBM and LCC location/status

WIDOW (Web-based IR Data for Ops & Warfighter): OPIR events

SMADS/CIP : Blue Force Assets

JBFSA (Joint Blue Force Situational Awareness): Army Air/Ground Tracks

JTCW/C2PC : Marine Air/Ground Tracks


The AGI Components and STK Engine allow developers the tools necessary to implement UDOP that supports situational awareness within net-centric operations

AGI Technologies are supporting end users at USSTRATCOM and their AOC located at Barksdale AFB

The GAPS Author based on AGI component technology develops and publishes VDF scenarios to user communities having access to the AGI Viewer

The AGI Viewer is approved for classified network usage

STK’s strong spatial-temporal visualization and analysis capabilities support a variety of C2 and ISR activities and allows end users to evaluate mission planning options or assess mission effectiveness

future work
Future Work

Certification and accreditation of additional STK capabilities on SIPR and JWICS networks

Provide increased streaming data support with the use of RT3

Integrate de-cluttering algorithms for improved visual presentation

Expand Space C2 and Cyber UDOP capabilities

Weather analysis for operational risk assessment

Enhance STK Analytics capability within SOA environment

Address new end user requirements continue to leverage the analytical power of STK into the future
