Daniel H. Wagner Associates has a long history of developing effective mission planning systems. From early work in antisubmarine warfare (ASW), to one of the first computer-assisted search and rescue (SAR) tools, to recent development of components for the ASW mission planner onboard the MH-60R helicopter, Wagner Associates effectively combines sophisticated algorithms with easy-to-use human interfaces to support mission planners. This page contains some of our notable achievements in Mission Planning.
Transitioned to USW-DSS Build 2; originally installed at CTF-34 in Pearl Harbor as part of Theater Undersea Warfare Initiative (TUSWI). Uses detailed non-homogeneous environmental data generated by the Navy standard STAPLE system, non-Gaussian tracking algorithms, and non-Gaussian resource optimization
MVMP optimally allocates Unmanned Vehicle (UV) assets in a typical Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) mission scenario. The demonstration MVMP optimally allocates Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) such as the Remote Environmental Monitoring Unit System (REMUS) or the Battlespace Preparation Autonomous Underwater
The Operational Route Planner (ORP) is a state-of-the-art anti-submarine warfare (ASW) search-planning tool used to produce rigorous, near-optimal search paths for multiple searchers employing passive and monostatic active sensors, and aircraft equipped with magnetic anomaly detection (MAD) systems.
During a Phase II Small Business Innovation and Research (SBIR) project for the Navy, we developed a prototype agent-based system called METPLAN. The system is designed to increase the effectiveness of PGMs by automatically integrating environmental data and weapon-specific and mission-specific environmental
Commander’s Estimate of the Situation/Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Tactical Decision Aid (CES/ISR TDA)
Wagner was awarded a Phase II Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) as a subcontractor to develop a full-scale Mine Warfare (MIW) CES/ISR TDA for eventual transition into the Mine Warfare and Environmental Decision Aids Library
Under a multi-million dollar contract from Lockheed Martin Systems Integration-Owego, Wagner developed an Acoustic Mission Planner (AMP) for the Navy’s MH-60R Multi-Mission Helicopter. The algorithms used in AMP were originally developed for the MH-60R Decision Support System Testbed
The Surface Warfare Tactical Decision Aid (SUWTDA) is a tactical decision aid for planning non-acoustic searches against surface ships and submarines. The initial build of this system, known as ASUWTDA, was integrated as a segment of the Global Command and Control System-Maritime (GCCS-M), and deployed
