m FalconView is being used right now by the USAF & other services m Part of a larger bundle of software known as PFPS Portable Flight Planning Software Its like how MS Word is part of MS Office m This technology doesn’t need to be invented m CAP simply needs to adapt to what the rest of DoD is doing It will be around in the future Compatible Follow-on software is already being fielded Many “advanced” technologies in CAP
PFPS / FalconView not the only Software m AFRCC uses their own software written specifically for RCCs m Another commonly used software platform is C2PC—Command and Control Personal Computer m These are examples of Command / Management Software, that’s not really what PFPS/Falconview is
