Integrated Tactical Mission System (ITMS) Capability Collaboration Event 

28-29 August 2018 

RSVP Closed


On 28 – 29 August, SOFWERX, in collaboration with USSOCOM, will host a Capability Collaboration Event to identify Integrated Tactical Mission System (ITMS) technology limitations and explore opportunities to overcome them.



The purpose of this ideation session is to inform PEO-FW of the current and near future capabilities that could potentially satisfy the ITMS for the MC/AC-130 platforms, and assess the required overarching architecture to integrate legacy systems into a single process.


Focus Areas

The end goal of ITMS is to maintain or reduce the required crew complement for MC/AC-130 operations as advanced mission capabilities are added and these platforms are employed against increasingly complex mission sets. This event will identify existing capability gaps, describe interfaces, and set end state requirements that would eventually lead to a full technical analysis of the current state.

At a minimum, ITMS is expected to integrate no less than 5 systems tied to mission planning and survivability of the MC-130 and AC-130 aircrafts.

The desired improvement categories are:

•  Allocation of tasks and processing to federated systems
•  Identification of gaps and conflicts within current system
•  Increased processing
•  Lower mean time between failures (MTBF)
