This project was conducted to provide research support to the Command and Control (C2) Decision Support Systems Section of Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) - Valcartier in the area of Air Force rapid response planning for immediate contingency operations. To enhance the ability to effectively plan and conduct immediate contingency operations, there is a requirement to understand both where the planning cycle can be optimised, and in what way new concepts, approaches, doctrine, tools, techniques, algorithms and processes (CADTTAP) can support this. This study identifies operational, theoretical and technical requirements for Air Force operational level rapid response planning for immediate contingency operations and applied applicable CADTTAP to design a conceptual roadmap for decision support system development. Use standing CONPLANs as a key element, the proposed roadmap facilitates the generation of planning documents including identifying the optimal course of action while leveraging a single point data entry of information elements and a flexible template system. The envisioned DSS is based on a Service Orientated Architecture (SOA) that will enable flexibility for system integration and web-based to facilitate the distributed collaboration in a Joint, International, Multi-agency and Public (JIMP) context that is becoming the norm in military operations, especial rapid response.
