Abstract: With increasing resource constraints in the Department of Defense, it is becoming critical to develop technologies that unburden small and minimally equipped teams of Soldiers carrying out a mission. As part of the Deployable Force Protection (DFP) program by the U.S. Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology, ASA(ALT), we developed the Leaders Mission Planning Tool (LMPT) to help Soldiers with little specialized training in sensor technologies effectively protect combat outposts by optimizing selection and placement of limited sensor resources. This product is the result of collaborating with Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate, interacting with DFP sensor teams, and incorporating Soldier feedback from multiple test exercises and demos. It is a powerful and intuitive user interface for the Environmental Awareness for Sensor and Emitter Employment (EASEE) computational engine (which runs on a standard laptop) designed by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) for battlefield signal modeling. This report discusses the role of battlefield signal modeling for effective sensor use, rationale and approaches for using markup file exchange to interface multiple software applications, and the capabilities and features of LMPT. Details about the EASEE markup interface are documented for collaborating software developers.
