Air Force Research Laboratory Features Charles River’s STOMP as an Innovative Success Story

Charles River Analytics, a developer of advanced technologies for intelligent systems, was recently featured by the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) for its innovative technology used in Software Toolkit for Optimizing Mission Plans (STOMP) for the Joint Synthetic Battlespace. STOMP addresses the Air Force’s requirement for a decision-support system to assist Air Operations Center (AOC) mission planners in addressing the emergence of time-sensitive/time-critical targets.

STOMP uses evolutionary algorithms (EAs)—a type of optimization technology—to generate a suite of alternatives for the AOC mission planning decision maker. The same optimization technology can also be applied to intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) operations and collection planning, mission planning for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), allocation of space-based resources, and missile defense.

STOMP also supported the development of Charles River’s commercial EAToolkit™, a technology for rapidly developing EAs to solve a wide variety of real-world optimization problems.
