BRO for Air Defense

The Need

The growing number and sophistication of air defense (AD) threats, coupled with the increasing number of AD systems, leads to sub-optimal decision-making and resource utilization. As a result, new solutions delivering real-time recommendations are required for improved asset protection and operational performance awareness. 

Our Solution

BRO for Air Defense (BRO-AD) is an advanced battle resource optimization system that maximizes the performance of AD missions. Enabling optimal deployment planning, real-time performance estimation and operational recommendations, and improved mission debriefing, BRO-AD maximizes AD weapon/sensor system utilization, operational awareness and decision quality. 

BRO-AD takes into account the interoperability and performance of varied sensors (radar, ELINT, IR), interception systems (missile, DEW, EW) and platforms (mobile, stationary) against various threats (ABT, TBM, CM). BRO-AD then delivers mission success estimation, optimal deployment recommendations, and performance degradation alerts. Working either independently or in conjunction with command and control (C4I) systems, BRO-AD enables air defense commanders to make faster and better decisions. 


Your Benefits

Increased asset protection via optimized deployment and operations of AD systems
Reduced armament waste via optimized asset allocation
Revealed performance gaps and firing patterns via friendly/enemy performance analysis
Shortened operational response times via performance alerts and recommendations

BRO-AD Products

BRO-AD Planner enables the mission planning team to estimate and maximize mission performance through optimized pre-mission planning: 

  • Planning and performance estimation: pre-mission sensor/launcher deployment or route planning and performance estimation versus mission goals, taking into account terrain, predicted environmental conditions, communication limitations, threat intelligence, and various other constraints 
  • Recommendations: optimal deployment, routing and setup recommendations for sensors and launchers against user-defined threat scenario 
  • Operational order generation: production of an operational order, which includes policy definition, resource deployment or routing, and major sensor and system parameters, such as search patterns and frequency allocations/policies  

BRO-AD Commander delivers a range of real-time capabilities to the mission operations team for optimized mission management:

  • Performance estimation: real-time performance estimation based on current operational deployment, system availability, environmental conditions and threat assessment/intelligence 
  • Alerts and notifications: real-time alerts and notifications about performance degradation or failed execution of the operational order

BRO-AD Debriefer allows the mission debriefing team to streamline and optimize the debriefing process:

  • Custom debriefing: user-friendly interface allowing the advanced user to create custom debriefing settings and templates for other users to employ, such as interception reports or operational summaries 
  • Anomaly/failure detection: advanced expert system that allows automatic anomaly/failure detection and classification (e.g. sensor malfunctions, external interferences, and abnormal target classes) using proprietary algorithms and big data analytics 
  • Data representations: creation of advanced representations of analyzed data with dashboards, web views and time-driven 3D graphics 
  • Data manipulation/visualization: access of advanced users to cutting-edge data manipulation and visualization tools that allow streamlining of the operational/technical debriefing process (e.g. defense and enemy effectiveness, enemy activity, and operability statistics)
