Designed by operationally experienced Inzpire personnel alongside an outstanding engineering development team, GECO (MSS) delivers exacting functionality that meets current and emerging mission requirements. The System is designed around a flexible open architecture that enables integration with existing ground and air-based mission systems.
GECO (MSS) is a genuinely modular app-based system, which comprises fully interoperable components that transform mission planning, mission execution and post-flight analysis. The collaborative working environment meets the most exacting client functionality, security, network and safety requirements.
GECO Mission Support System Features and Benefits
Mission Planning System and GECO (Air)
Our Mission Planning System and Mission Management System provide end-to-end mission support.
The ground-based MPS is used to collaboratively plan, rehearse and debrief the mission. The MPS can draw-in planning data from multiple sources including online meteorological and NOTAM services, national and commercial mapping, intelligence information, and aircraft performance documents. Outputs from the MPS, such as navigation routes, are highly interoperable with other planning systems and can be loaded into existing platform flight management systems.
GECO (Air) provides a mobile approach to on-board dynamic mission planning and execution using Inzpire’s tablet-based mission system. GECO (Air) brings 5th generation situational awareness into any cockpit. Once loaded with the mission plan, GECO (Air) provides highly intuitive cockpit situational awareness and safety functionality which enhance mission effectiveness and reduce cockpit workload.
Customer-focussed Design and Intuitive User Interface
Designed by Aviators, for Aviators.
GECO (MSS) was conceived and designed by highly experienced aviators from a wide range of military backgrounds who truly understand mission tasking and workloads both in and out of the cockpit. Our aircrew work shoulder-to-shoulder with our outstanding engineering development team who ensure that the System is fully compliant with demanding military needs. Inzpire’s Mission Systems Team will develop a deep understanding of your requirement and work closely with you to provide the optimum solution.
Full Mission Support and Interoperability.
GECO (MSS) can provide full-mission support to a wide variety of aircraft types, to deliver a single, powerful solution to enable the entire force, as well as operation with other nations. The architectural design of the System means that interoperability is easily achieved and that the System remains flexible enough to work with third-party mission planning systems.

GECO (MSS) FOR THE UK JOINT HELICOPTER COMMAND PUMA FORCE
In January 2016, Inzpire delivered the GECO (MSS) to the UK joint helicopter command’s puma force. GECO (MSS) brings the ability to plan, rehearse, execute and debrief the entire mission through the most capable and highly intuitive Mission Support System currently available on the military market.
In a whole of market competition, Inzpire was chosen by the MoD in April 2015 to provide the GECO (MSS) for the Puma HC2 Force. Inzpire’s Mission Systems Team worked closely with the Puma Force and a team from the UK MoD’s Defence Equipment and Support organisation to ensure that the exacting requirements were met. Inzpire delivered the GECO (MSS) in January 2016 and the System IOC was declared in February before being deployed on operations in March.
GECO (MSS) has brought a highly flexible capability the Puma Force which can be rapidly prepared for deployment worldwide through its peerless data management system. Once deployed, the rugged capability provides unrivalled mission planning, rehearsal, execution and debriefing in the most demanding of environments and on the most appropriate device, be it a tablet in a remote, austere environment or a fully networked rugged laptop/desktop System.
