From Commander’s Intent to Robot Action.
MPMS allows you to integrate multiple legacy unmanned platforms (air, ground, surface) into a single cohesive environment. MPMS provides advanced mission planning and management capabilities. A single operator can task and monitor multiple unmanned vehicles, and break the “one soldier one robot” paradigm. MPMS is developed as a set of tools that can integrate with your legacy systems through an easy to use SDK.
The Functional capabilities of MPMS are described below. Additional technical information on capabilities is also available.
Open Architecture Support
Fundamental to MPMS has built-in support for interoperability standards. MPMS’s advanced service mediation layer currently supports ROS and JAUS (SAE-AS4 and IOP), with extensions for UCS and STANAG-4586 in development. With MPMS’s support for state of the art interoperability specifications, integrating it into your standards-compliant platform is extremely straightforward. With MPMS’s advanced mission SDK, integrating your closed legacy system is equally straightforward.
True Distributed C2
MPMS’s Mission Management System is responsible for orchestrating and coordinating platform behaviors based on Tasks that you create. MMS is a software behavior engine that resides either on your platform or your OCU or GCS. MMS contains Neya’s Service Mediation Layer, which allows it to coordinate behaviors that have ROS, JAUS, or proprietary interfaces. Since MMS can reside at nearly any point in your system architecture, you can integrate MPMS into your platforms based on your system requirements, not ours.
Easy Task Creation
Waypoints are passé. MPMS’s advanced graphical task editor allows you to rapidly create complex multi-vehicle missions with multiple cross-dependencies and payload actions, without writing a line of code. Handle contingency plans, coordinated activities, error conditions, and survivability concerns with ease.
Just-In-Time Tactical Decision Support
Our Task Editor allow you to specify the tasking, contingencies, and coordination of multi-platform missions offline. Once those tasks and missions are assigned to your unmanned assets, the MPMS Handheld Mission Controller software allows in-field personnel to rapidly modify key tactical mission parameters in real time. Build your missions offline. Specify the particulars based on real time tactical information.
No Throw Away Investments
You’ve invested millions of dollars into your platforms, autonomy, and architecture. MPMS allows you to extend the life of that investment. Add easy task planning, asset deployment scheduling, and multi-platform coordination to your legacy systems, and re-use your behavior, autonomy, mobility, and platform control software.
