Tactical Integrated Sensor Information System (TISIS)
The Tactical Integrated Sensor Information System (TISIS) enables an aircraft to collect and present integrated tactical situational awareness data gathered by radar, electro-optics, electronic support measures, and acoustics and magnetic anomaly detector systems. It delivers information to on-board operators through an easily configured and managed digital map display. Integrated with surveillance systems, it enables surface and sub-surface maritime, overland and littoral surveillance operations.
- A flexible system architecture that can be configured to meet the constraints of functionality, packaging, weight and balance, and redundancy;
- A mission-oriented operator interface utilizing fully programmable controls and displays;
- Development of operator interface and toolset involved human factors engineering studies with input from operational aircrew;
- A fully integrated tactical navigation and data processing component;
- External interfacing using MIL-STD-1553B avionics data bus, Ethernet, ARINC 429, and Fibre Channel;
- Expansion capability to incorporate legacy interfaces where required;
- Operating systems supported: Windows, Solaris, and Linux, and;
- Interoperable with other platforms through standard military and commercial data links.
- Wide-ranging tactical decision aids improve operator effectiveness and allow prompt operator response times.
- Integrates a modern multi-sensor suite providing mission crews with "all weather, day and night target identification and classification capability".
- An Operator Machine Interface developed with extensive mission crew involvement provides operators with ability to respond effectively to real world mission requirements.
- A complete suite of training devices, customized to end-user needs, ensures operation and maintenance personnel are quickly prepared to use and support the system throughout its life cycle, starting from its initial deployment.
