The pilot is tasked with designing and planning a mission – reliably and within a few minutes. He needs to plan the optimal and safest route for fulfilling his mission. OptaPlan is the expert tool that supports the pilot with customised features which filter and highlight important objects in a specific situation. OptaPlan visualizes almost any type of information from any source. It connects its users to the world of C3I. Aeronautical data, situational awareness, ORBATs, emergency airfield sand weather conditions are just afew examples of the wide variety of information required for the tactical mission planning process. OptaPlan covers map and overlay preparation for onboard tools and avionics. The pilot is thus able to use this important information for providing complete awareness of any incident occuring during the mission.
