Portable Flight Planning Software (PFPS)
PFPS is an integrated suite of PC-based mission planning tools using a common graphical user interface. PFPS is installable on any Windows 2000 or XP PC. It displays standard digital maps and produces user-customizable kneeboard cards, combat mission folders, and data transfers to compatible digital transfer devices. The PFPS software uses an implementation of the client-server data model to provide a shared view of the mission route to software components. The PFPS Route Server synchronizes the different PFPS components so that changes made to the route by one PFPS application are passed to all other components. This allows the operator to perform multiple operations on the same routes without reentering data.
The PFPS software suite includes FalconView, Combat Flight Planning Software (CFPS), Combat Weapon Delivery Software (CWDS), Combat Air Drop Planning Software (CAPS), and several other software packages built by different software contractors. More information on PFPS can be found in the brochure attached to this page.
