Several of today's emerging and developed technologies lend themselves to an innovative engineering solution to the challenges of battlefield situational awareness, automated route planning, navigation, and coordination for combat vehicles on the modern battlefield. HTI proposes to integrate these technologies in the development of an Electronic Map Display and Route Planner (EMD/RP). The Phase I effort will focus on the various individual technologies as well as their integration for a fully functional EMD/RP application. The specific technologies include: Geographic Information System (GIS) software; GIS databases; flat-panel displays; autorouting algorithms; Global Positioning System (GPS); and tactical communication systems, such as the Position Locating and Reporting System (PLARS). Each of these critical technologies represents a facet of a production EMD/RP. The intent is to pursue an integrated system architecture taking advantage to the greatest extent possible of existing technologies tailored for the EMD/PR application.
