The US Air Force (USAF) has awarded a contract to Northrop Grumman to enhance and maintain the joint mission planning system (JMPS) framework.

The $19m contract, awarded under the Mission Planning Enterprise Contract (MPEC) II, will update and improve the JMPS framework by architecting a shared mapping capability.

The company will modernise the software to optimise computing resources, enhance plug-in capability for components and applications and enable modular installations.

The JMPS Framework consists of core elements and functions for the JMPS family of scalable, extensible and configurable tools and decision aids.

The aids help in automated planning for sensor, weapon or aircraft missions that include day-to-day training, proficiency flying to peacetime operational / exercise sorties and complex combat scenarios.

The Northrop team includes DCS, Idaho National Laboratory, and The Software Revolution.
