The purpose of the Course of Action (COA) and Recognized Air Picture (RAP) research project is to advance development of decision support computer-based tools to assist operational level commanders throughout the life cycle of a COA. As such, these tools will have to support the Canadian Forces operational planning process (CFOPP) in situation analysis, elaboration of different COAs, selection of the most appropriate one for planning, as well as the conduct of the subsequent operation. Given that, at the execution stage, the RAP is the medium to monitor the situation and develop an understanding of what is taking place in the field, then, a decision support system relative to the dynamic compilation and the dynamic exploitation of the RAP is also required. To effectively investigate both COA and RAP decision support tools, a military scenario must be complex enough to justify the use of decision support systems for the compilation of the RAP as well as to challenge the exploitation of this RAP for mission planning purposes.
