BAE pitches Sceptre as mission management tool of choice for Typhoon and other fast jets | Janes - 09 April 2018

BAE Systems is showcasing the latest version of its Sceptre mission management tool for fast jets, having developed it to the latest capability standard of the Eurofighter Typhoon combat aircraft.

As noted by Aiken and Loader, Sceptre is a modular Windows-based application capable of being used on a number of hardware devices including tablets, PCs, and touch tables. Sceptre supports the full plan, brief, rehearse, execute, and debrief cycle and is the mission data portal (MDP) interacting with the wider operational mission support (OMS) environment and the platform and weapon system.

When the mission is planned on the Sceptre system, the mission data is loaded to a portable data store (PDS) that is, in turn, used to load the data to the aircraft.
