The Automated Reconnaissance and Surveillance (R&S) Planning Tool is a prototype of the Army's proposed Common Ground Station, and serves as a Intelligence interface to NPSNET. This system incorporates Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield (IPB) and intelligence asset modeling in order to create realistic intelligence collection. IPB is the analysis of the affects of the terrain, weather, and enemy doctrine on the friendly situation. Intelligence System Modeling is performed for Mounted and Dismounted Scouts, Ground Surveillance Radars (GSR), Joint Surveillance and Attack Radar System (JSTARS), and Remotely Piloted Vehicles (RPV). These systems' collection effort can be monitored by displaying their individual perspectives of the battlefield, or their combined collection effort can be plotted on a 2D or 3D representation of the Terrain. The raw intelligence data produced by these systems is analyzed according to the number and types of enemy vehicles located. Probable enemy courses of action are also generated. Automated R&S planning can greatly enhance the already lethal capability of the Army by speeding up the Collection and Dissemination Process.
