Charles River Analytics receives additional funding to develop mission planning tools
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. U.S. Navy officials modified an existing follow-on contract with Charles River Analytics to create mission planning tools for the U.S. Navy. Charles River will receive additional funding under the 18-month contract that is now valued close to $750,000.
Under contract, the Advanced Mission Display and Planning Tools (AMPT) will address the challenges of unmanned and manned teaming operations in complex operational environments. AMPT’s mission monitoring and decision aiding visualization framework allows operators to intuitively perceive system status, identify response requirements, and efficiently direct planning tools.
“Under this effort, we are developing tools to help operators by addressing the unique complexities of teaming variations across a range of missions and operational contexts,” explains Stephanie Kane, a scientist at Charles River and Technical Lead on the AMPT effort.
