Mission Systems

Visualization Framework


Visualization Framework (VF) solves the problem of diverse and divergent geo-based information visualization displays for undersea warfare.  VF gives the warfighter a single, consolidated geo-based visualization capability. VF is the basis of a Common Tactical Picture (CTP) for the ASW Mission Package (MP) for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), as well as the front-user interface for the Undersea Warfare Decision Support System (USW-DSS) Total Training Environment.  VF is an open architecture display application environment that promotes collaborative development of geographic-based displays and related decision aids.  VF utilizes a plug-in architecture for content insertion using a standard OSGi dynamic module loading system.  These modules define content types including map overlays, tools and services.  VF isolates content developers from low-level details of the map implementation, providing a higher-level abstracted application programming interface (API).


Data Fusion

Data Fusion Framework (FF) is an environment for rapid integration of local and cross-platform data fusion capabilities.  FF defines a scalable, customizable, and extensible distributed track management capability integrating track-related data from a variety of sources. FF separates the implementation of the functional components from their interfaces and system-specific data models, simplifying new development or facilitating integration with existing products wrapped with compliant interfaces.



Mission Planning


L3HARRIS Adaptive Methods is an R&D leader in underwater acoustic simulation tools for the US Navy.  We are recognized experts in the fields of underwater acoustic modeling, and in particular multi-statics modeling. We design, develop, and integrate the Active System Performance Estimate Computer Tool (ASPECT), the Air ASW multi-static sensor mission planning tool employed by the US Navy at Tactical Operation Centers, Mobile TOCs, and aboard P-8s.  ASPECT is part of the Multistatic Active Coherent and Improved Extended Echo Ranging (IEER) Programs of Record.


Autonomy and Optimization

“DETACHMENT UUV” (DET-UUV) is focused on understanding our customers’ requirements for unmanned missions and solving a variety of concomitant challenges. To ensure robust, stable behavior for complex long-duration UUV operations, we created an Autonomy Framework for interfacing to UUV hardware and software systems. Our UUV payload development efforts are supported by our UUV Development Laboratory that maintains small UUVs for prototyping, and laboratory and in-water testing.
