Tactical Automated Mission Planning System
Definition/Scope: Tactical Automated Mission Planning System (TAMPS) is the Navy-Marine Corps standard unit-level aircraft mission planning system. It contains data for a wide variety of aviation platforms, including the F/A-18 Hornet, F-14 Tomcat, S-3 Viking, and E-2 Hawkeye. TAMPS is capable of loading the flight data that includes waypoints and sequential steering files, air-to-air radar presets, Tactical Aircraft Navigation Aid (TACAN) channels, and identification files. TAMPS enables the loading of independent overlays for aircraft software and bulk files for missile software, enabling the use of weapons such as the Stand-Off Land Attack Missile (SLAM), Joint Stand-Off (JSOW), and the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM)). TAMPS is also used for loading Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS) and Global Positioning System (GPS) files into aircraft flight software, and it is interoperable with the Global Command and Control System-Maritime (GCCS-M).
