Organizing chaos: the tactical assault kit collaborative mission planner
MetadataShow full item record
This project seeks to improve mission planning and digital collaboration across Joint, Interagency, Intergovernmental and Multinational (JIIM) boundaries. Interagency and SOF elements have rallied around the Tactical Assault Kit (TAK) as their mission command tool of choice. Case studies, such as the 2017 Presidential Inauguration Collective Security Event, Operation Flaming Sword 2017, and the counter-ISIS campaign in Iraq and Syria, highlight the vast potential for this emerging technology. Enhancing TAK from a situational awareness tool and communications device to a comprehensive mission planning and execution system can bring additional benefits. Any TAK advancement can have an immediate impact on ongoing IA, SOF, and conventional military operations. Working with USSOCOM's Special Operations Mission Planning Environment Team, this NPS Capstone team designed a Collaborative Mission Planning plug-in to the TAK Applications. In this capstone, Chapter II describes what the collaborative mission planner plug-in is and will become. Chapter III describes the multinational aspect of TAK and how current NATOSOF operations can benefit from adopting TAK CMP as a common planning collaboration tool. The TAK CMP represents a significant step forward for mission command and C4ISR; this capstone's goals address key capability gaps while producing a final product that assimilates into current mission planning and approval systems.
