Mission Planning Made Fast and Easy
At left, Navy personnel discuss navigation charts. To plan safe and effective missions, Sailors can spend days or even weeks collecting and analyzing maps and charts.
A new Mission Planning Application technology sponsored by ONR uses partial automation, apps and widgets to review thousands of chart markings in a fraction of the time, pinpointing potential hazards and creating optimal routes around rocks, reefs and other shallow spots. Originally designed for submarine missions, it is also being installed on a surface ship, USS Mobile Bay (CG 53).
