Enterprise Collection Planner (ECP)

The Enterprise Collection Planner (ECP) is an automated mission planning tool for airborne platforms. Riverside Research developed this capability to provide mission planners, sensor operators, and target analysts the ability to generate aircraft route and sensor plans based on threats, targets, terrain, weather, aircraft performance, sensor capability, and user configuration.

The platform-agnostic ECP is currently operational in U.S. Government enterprises today and provides a comprehensive aircraft mission management capability to support all types of airborne intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance collection. As a license-free product for the U.S. Government, the ECP is a powerful and affordable solution for airborne ISR orchestration.

Features and Benefits

  • Platform agnostic
  • Multi-phenomenology
  • System models
    • Design a system by combining platform and sensor model via a drag-and-drop interface
  • Threat models
    • Create, manage, and import threat data (e.g., radars, missile sites) and keep-out zones
  • Target models
    • View target details and collection constraints such as location, time-over-target, periodicity, distribution, azimuth and elevation look-angles, resolution, slant range, etc.
  • Weather models
    • Integrate Air Force Weather Agency forecast data
  • Route Planning
    • Calculate aircraft routes to solve requirements without failing constraints
    • Analyze approach and departure routes, ingress and egress points, and contingency plans (e.g., lost-link, lost-power, payload failure, missed approach)
  • Sensor Planning
    • Calculate sensor mode and pointing (gimbal) plans to ensure successful ISR collection
  • 4D Visualization
    • Overlay mission data on GIS data such as DTED, CIB, and CADRG
  • Service-oriented
  • License-free
  • Web-based
