Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


IV.M.03. Automated Weather Decision Aids. Create and demonstrate an Integrated Weather Effects Decision Aid (IWEDA) which uses artificial intelligence techniques and knowledge of atmospheric effects to enhance and expand current weather decision capabilities in FY95. Additionally, for FY95, develop a threat weather effects module for the IWEDA enabling commanders to compare weather-based advantages/disadvantages of friendly and threat systems. Implement these capabilities on Army common hardware/software (CHS) with automated four dimensional (4D) weather input. Demonstrate an "Owning the Weather" capability using IWEDA during the ATLANTIC RESOLVE 96 Advanced Warfighting Experiment (AWE) in FY96. Complete the horizontal and seamless integration of the IWEDA into the Army Battle Command System (ABCS) Battlefield Automated Systems (BASs) and demonstrate during the Brigade Task Force XXI AWE in FY 1997.

Supports: CERDEC Battlefield Digitization, Precision Strike ATD, PEO CCS-IMETS Block III.
