1 Link Interoperability Data Analysis With MANDRIL MANDRIL for MULTI-LINKS

2 Problem oMany Units with many Data Links – Interoperability problems hidden in the large volumes of data

3 Solution: MANDRIL  MANDRIL - Message ANalysis and Data Reduction for the Integration of Links oIntegrated Suite of Software Programs for Analysing Link Data Recordings oEssential Tool to uncover Interoperability Problems oKey component of iSMART process oDe Facto International Standard for IO Data Analysis oUsed by more customers than any comparable tool

4 MULTI-LINK CAPABILITY oMULTIPLE LINKS oLink 16, Link 11, IJMS oVMF, Link 22 oIP and XML Enabled oMULTIPLE TERMINALS and PLATFORMS oMIDS LVT, JTIDS Class 2, URC-138 oAll MIDS Hosts: EF2000, F-16, Rafale, etc. oE-3A/D/F oNimrod MRA4, SKW oNavy, MCE

5 MULTIPLE FILE FORMATS oMANDRIL decodes more format types than other analysis tools oOpen Systems Architecture oEasy to integrate with user’s data oSome 50 different format types can be decoded oTerminal Recordings oHost Recordings oReal-time Bus Capture Files oMore are added with each release

6 TRACK RECORD oMANDRIL has an impressive Track Record of Use oTool of choice for 5-nation MIDS/LVT Integration Programme oEADS stated that “3 times the number of test engineers would be required without it” oUsed in Platform Integration Projects oF3 and E-3D Test and Trials oUsed in Multi-National Trials oUS/UK Interoperability Trials oSIMPLE Trials oMany Interoperability Problems only found with MANDRIL

7 ENHANCEMENTS oContinuous upgrade program oYearly maintenance entitles users to upgraded versions as they are released oUpgrades add substantial functionality oAutomated Analysis o3-D Capability oMIL-STD and ICD updates oContinuing integration with other TDL tools oMANDRIL can also be produced in Bespoke Editions for special User Requirements

8 SUPPORT oSupport Web Site oProblem Report Database oVersion Information oSoftware Downloads oUser Group oEADS stated that “support was the best they had known with a software product”

9 SOFTWARE oMANDRIL uses Advanced Software Technology oSpreadsheet Paradigm oUses Microsoft ® Excel™ as spreadsheet engine oProvides leveraged functionality oCustom software linked to Excel oFully Microsoft ® Windows™ compatible oTable driven - user modifiable database oUK Patent; US, and European Patents Pending

10 EXAMPLE OUTPUT AutoFilters allow rapid summary and filtering English Readout

11 EXAMPLE PROBLEM oInvestigation of GPQ o‘Graphs Wizard’ automates graph-plotting

12 TRACK ANIMATION oReplay of scenario recording, plots moving tracks

13 LINE-OF-SIGHT oTrack animation with terrain mapping and line-of-sight calculations Visible terrain and sea from ground station Visible region at or above 500 ft


15 AUTOMATED ANALYSIS oAutomated Analysis oAllows recording to be pre-processed for potential problems oChecks against MIL-STD and Implementation Plan Rules oDomain knowledge is captured in rule sets oProvides ‘heads-up’ to problems for further investigation


17 AUTOMATED ANALYSIS FEATURES oCombined Multi-Link Analysis oLink 16, Link 11, VMF oUser-configurable rules - Checks message transmit and receive protocols: oRRN and periodic update rate oWord sequences oReceipt/Compliance Rules oPosition Checking oChecks recorded against predicted position oChecks against Track Quality or user tolerance oTrack Correlation checking

18 IMP PLAN and STANAG oMessage and Field Value Checking oChecks against Implementation Plan oSingle or Multiple Imp. Plans oIntegrated with iSMART Tools (eBIT database) oCan check against specific platform implementation oChecks protocol against MIL-STD oRules Library oSingle or Multiple Editions

19 iSMART oiSMART - interoperable Systems Management And Requirements Transformation oProven System for finding and resolving interoperability problems throughout system lifecycle oProven Nationally and Internationally oBeing Adopted by US, Australia and NATO ode facto standard for Interoperability Assessment oApplication of iSMART mandated as UK Defence policy oMANDRIL is linked to iSMART via eSMART Toolkit

20 eSMART toolkit iSMART and MANDRIL iSMART PROCESS eBIT tool MANDRIL Automated Analysis
