BMT is leading a research project developed for the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL). The Joint User Mission Planning (JUMP) for Cyber and Electro-Magnetic Activity (CEMA) brings together all the physical knowledge a commander planning a mission needs, such as mapping, the environment, satellite imagery and 3D buildings.
DSTL is an executive agency of the Ministry of Defence. The aim of the project, which is a joint enterprise with Riskaware, is to provide the Front-Line Commands and other users with an informed visual understanding of the integration of cyber operations across all domains – something that is currently missing from existing mission planning tools. The demonstrator will also provide cyber situational awareness, for example, how systems and devices are connected to each other, what is the state of the services, are servers patched to the correct level and what vulnerabilities or threats exist.
Simon Luck, Head of Technology & Innovation at BMT, says: “There isn’t a mission planning capability that provides that cyber view and presents the vulnerabilities and risks to the mission commander. JUMP helps to bring in new datasets very quickly, apply autonomy, to develop multiple courses of action. The system will tell you where the risk lies, your vulnerabilities according to the threats, and will help to develop a visual of your possible courses of action. JUMP facilitates the management and visualisation of the information supporting this decision-making process.”
The initiative also allows experts in other locations to input their intelligence and share the same view using rapidly advancing technology such as Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR).
