KIC Computing Ltd - developing solution since 1995 - for a dependable and professional service


KIC's integrated mission planner, moving map and report generator developed specifically for the Open Skies arena is now available to all treaty operators.

Our Joint Open Skies Mission Planning System (JOMPS) and Moving Map & Report Generator System (JOMMS) provide a tailored, consistent and easy to use operational environment designed specifically to support the Treaty on Open Skies and the needs of treaty operators in pre mission, mission and post mission activities.

JOMPS and JOMMS are already in operational use with the United Kingdom Joint Arms Control Implementation Group (JACIG), the Verification Centre of the German Armed Forces (ZVBw) and the Swedish Armed Forces.

Operational Benefits

  • Requires commercially available off-the-shelf laptop and GPS equipment with no dependency on expensive custom hardware.
  • Portable solution requiring no connection to the aircraft.
  • Consistent easy to use operator interfaces to reduce operator pressure and training requirements.
  • Support for multiple commercial and free map data sources to provide for different aspects of any operation.
  • Advanced simulation and presentation of planned mission for chair fly rehearsal and use as a training aid.
  • Easily modifiable aircraft characteristics to ensure accurate and flyable resulting planned flight paths.
  • Import and export facilities for route segment, POI and sensor on/off locations supporting Microsoft Word®, Excel® and GPX formats for maximum interoperability with external systems and other treaty nations.
  • Rapid creation of OSF14 and OSF15 treaty documentation from customisable templates to minimise the need for software updates on every format change.
  • Clear situational, progress and camera status information to provide observing parties with an easy to interpret mission following viewer.
  • OSF14 Mission Report production within minutes of the final camera operation to ease time pressures for report completion.
  • Post mission visualisation of recorded aircraft track and sensor observation periods to assist with dispute resolution.
  • Continued development and enhancement for the ever changing needs of Open Skies operators, treaty formats and emerging data sources.
  • Product and technical support from KIC with over 12 years experience in the Open Skies arena, ensuring operational delivery.

Pre Mission

  • Automatic recording of minimum and maximum AGL height for each sensor active observation period.
  • Optional automatic recording of GPS fix changes, crossing of cross-track error threshold and aircraft position.

Fall-over Recovery

  • Automatic recovery to last known good status in the event of a hardware or software fall-over to ensure continuity of operation.

Post Mission

Exmaple OSF14 Report

Report Creation

  • Generate OSF14 format Mission Report Microsoft Word® document from customisable template using recorded mission events and previously produced OSF15 format Microsoft Excel® files.
