The core of the MSS 6000 is a mission management system that links all available information together and presents a situation overview to the operator for interpretation and further action. The mission management system is based on GIS (Geographical Information System) technology, and the available information is presented against a backdrop of a digital nautical chart. The information from on board sensors and external inputs is presented live to the operator and also recorded digitally for later analysis.

The mission management system generates various reports, of which some can be customised to meet specific requirements. These reports can be viewed, analysed and distributed in real time or filed, compiled and distributed later.

A post-processing station, located at the mission control centre and/or at the aircraft home base will allow replay of the mission data for continued analysis and processing.
