F-35 Mission Planning

F-35 Mission Planning


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.

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?
