To increase the effectiveness of searching, detecting, classifying, and identifying contacts particularly at night and in poor weather, the Advanced Integrated Multi-sensor Surveillance (AIMS) system is being developed. The AIMS system is advanced through the integration of four sensors into a single gimbal. As such, the system will support a myriad of missions for both the CP-140 and Fixed Wing Search and Rescue (FWSAR) communities, including timely search and rescue (SAR) response, maritime operations, and ground surveillance in support of the Land Forces (LF). To ensure optimal performance, the AIMS system requires an appropriate interface and controls, the design of which must provide effective interaction between the operator and the technological capability of the system. This document, prepared by CAE Professional Services on behalf of Defence R&D Canada (DRDC), presents results stemming from the mission, function, and task analysis of the activities associated with employing the AIMS system on the FWSAR and AIMP CP-140 platforms to support the conduct of SAR and ground surveillance missions respectively. This data will be used to support the design of an Operator Machine Interface (OMI) for the AIMS system.
