Mission Planning for the Air Force is an essential task that involves the analysis and development of flight plans relevant to targets, terrain, weather, aircraft configuration and performance capabilities. This includes planning for cargo, weapons, fuel requirement calculations, and route assessment based on location and type of enemy threats that may be encountered. Plans are reviewed and briefed by mission planners to achieve maximum effectiveness and efficiently prior to downloading the mission to on-board aircraft avionics.
At DS2, our staff has had a close working relationship with Air Force mission planners and have been involved in the development of various components of Portable Flight Planning Software (PFPS), Execution Planning Software (XPlan), and the Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS) over the last 15 years.
