The Automatic Mission Abort System is an MSCCS/MMP configuration designed to ensure the mission of a flight vehicle is performed inside a Permitted Flight Corridor (PFC). The Flight Vehicle could be an aircraft or UAV or also a missile or projectile. Along with displaying the current operations, AMAS takes advanced decisions along with the resulting output signals, in relation with predefined mission events (e.g. flight termination).
The AMAS system integrates real-time data from different TSPI sources as radars, tracking sensors and telemetry systems. The system processes data through advanced data fusion algorithms in order to produce the visual output of the current operation. Furthermore it takes advanced real-time decisions automatically providing output signals and commands during operations. This feature is performed by the state-transition configurable algorithms.
Regarding the deployment point of view, AMAS is a distributed and mobile system composed of three main units. The function of each unit is described below:
- The Processing Unit that manages all the AMAS real-time system tasks
- The Control Unit which allows user to monitor and command the AMAS by means of a GUI
- The Monitoring Unit, an additional GUI subsystem that allow users to monitor the status of the processing system and also of the tracking data
