The KCG team provided consulting and analytical services to investigate and identify operational surveillance and weapon system sensors (remote, autonomous, and semi-autonomous) that had the potential to contribute to the spatial and temporal METOC characterization of the joint battlespace.
KCG conducted initial seminal research on project that included contact and visits with CFFC, USJFCOM, Oceanographer of the Navy Office (UAV requirements) and discussions with SPAWAR - PMW155. The team surveyed and outlined the current operational suite of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and their surveillance and weapon system sensors. A feasibility study was then conducted to outline the feasibility of the UAVs and sensors, the UAV operational data communications paths and termination points, the operational data products generated by UAVs, types of METOC products that may be generated based on existing data/product communications and the current products, to develop an approach for exploiting the METOC data and information and established UAV products.
KCG provided an initial UAV Operational METOC Capability Study: UAV METOC Data as Part of the Expeditionary Command and Control, Communications, Computers, and Combat Systems Grid (EC5G – which was approved for a ‘proof of process demonstration’ in JTFEX 04-2 in June 2004.
