This report documents the Moving Map Composer (MMC) software system developed by scientists in NRL Code 7441. The MMC software is resident on the AV-8B Map 2 Station, which NRL designed and configured in support of AV-8B mission planners and pilots in the field. These MMC driven Map 2 Stations enable AV-8B users to perform the following functions: (1) Design and build Aircraft Optical Disk (AOD) images from user specified Compressed Aeronautical Chart (CAC) and scanned chart data; (2) Include emergency check lists and reconnaissance photographs in an AOD image; (3) Write completed AOD images to militarized Write Once Read Many AODs; (4) Evaluate failed AODs and recover from failed AOD image builds; (5) Design and build Mission Planning System Compact Disk Images (MPS CDIs) from user specified CAC, scanned chart, and DTED data; (6) Write MPS CDIs to Recordable Compact Disk (CD-R) for mission planning purposes; and (7) Scan and compress paper charts into a CAC compatible format (when CAC or Arc Digitized Raster Graphics (ADRG) are not available) and include them in an AOD image or MPS-CDI. These Map 2 Stations will completely replace all map data functions and all optical disk image functions that are currently handled by the AV-8B Map, Operator, and Maintenance Stations (MOMS).This report documents the Moving Map Composer (MMC) software system developed by scientists in NRL Code 7441.
