ForeSee can support operational planning and the execution of tactical missions. The key capabilities are ForeSee are:
within the context of deliberate planning, will be able to shape the operational plan prior to deployment and the development of tactical plans when on mission.
allows a commander to visualise the meteorological effects on the ownship and task group’s RF sensor systems and the ability of the RF sensor systems to achieve their objectives and accomplish the mission.
is able to recommend optimal settings for the RF sensor systems to achieve their mission objectives under different meteorological conditions.
allows a commander to assess when ownship and task group’s RF sensor systems have an advantage over an adversary at a specific time and place.
allows a commander to establish when an adversary may have an advantage over ownship and so allow the commander to take action to lessen or remove the advantage.
is able to recommend ship positions within a task group to minimise emissions under Emissions Control (EMCON) conditions, whilst maximising RF coverage.
ForeSee shares many processing capabilities in common the SADM (Ship Air Defence Model) and ForeSee employs radar and ESM models from SADM. ForeSee can import numerical weather predictions, individual meteorological profiles, local surface data and create modified refractivity profiles that blend the upper air profiles with the evaporation duct.
Optimisation (Plots of radar configurations for ownship and taskgroup optimised for):
Anti-Ship Missile Defence (ASMD);
Optimised route to minimise detection by adversary radars.
For each coverage diagram the following information is available:
Constant Altitude Plan Position Indicator (CAPPI) plots – user can interactively change the height being displayed
Vertical Coverage diagram – user can interactively change the azimuth of the diagram
The user is able to create, import and configure models of platforms, taskgroups, RF sensors and missiles.
The outputs are generated in a soft copy format, that will allow plots and other pertinent information to be copied and incorporated into MS power point presentations, or the report utility can be used to generate a structured report.
