F-35 Mission Planning

F-35 Mission Planning

Problem Statement:

How might we design the Link 16 editor for F-35 mission planning so that 1) planning choices best support mission objectives and the capabilities of the F-35, and 2) the editor is compatible with NOMS?

Event Description

AF CyberWorx designers worked with developers from SKIcamp and SpaceCamp to improve the Link 16 component of the mission planning software for the F-35 Lightning II. Through June and July 2020, the team worked to design a better user interface for the mission planner to increase planning efficiency and overall usability. The developers worked to ensure the result would be compatible with the Next-Generation Open Mission System (NOMS) so other mission planners could use it.
